A gay man was murdered in the 6 Mile and Woodward area of Detroit where two murders of transgender individuals have occurred this year already. The man, identified only as Melvin, was found by police wearing women’s clothing and friends believe he was targeted for his sexual orientation.

Said the victim’s friend Julisa Abad: “Melvin identified as a gay male not transgender. He did cross dress from time to time in order to make a living…”We are very scared. Transgender people as well as the LGBT community, have been victimized and are targets in (the) 6 Mile and Woodward (area).””
