Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have paid tribute to a murdered trans woman, in a tweet to mark this month of Pride events.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex included a picture of Muhlaysia Booker from Dallas in a collage of nine pro-LGBT pictures.

Muhlaysia is pictured top left. Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, also appears in the collage … remembering her efforts to dispel the fear surrounding HIV and AIDS.
The Royal couple pay tribute to members of the LGBT community, and supporters.
“We stand with you and support you” their post says. It ends with a rainbow.
This month we pay tribute to the accounts supporting the LGBTQ+ community – those young and old, their families and friends, accounts that reflect on the past and are hopeful for a deservedly more inclusive future.— The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@TheRoyalSussex) June 1, 2019

shocking death toll in USA
Muhlaysia was brutally and repeatedly beaten in front of a large crowd in Dallas in April. Weeks later she was murdered, shot dead.
Three trans women were murdered in America in that one week.
The Human Rights Campaign, a leading LGBT group in the USA, say at least 26 trans people were murdered in the country last year.
