Transgender Maryland Woman Beaten in Baltimore McDonald’s

UPDATE: Sign a petition of protest at change.org http://www.change.org/petitions/demand-that-the-employees-on-duty-at-mcdonalds-be-held-responsible-in-the-beating-of-a-transwoman

The Bilerico Project has broken a story concerning the beating of a transgender woman in a Baltimore McDonald’s.  Apparently the woman got into an altercation with two other female patrons in the restroom.  What is tragic is the non-reaction of the McDonald’s staff. They did nothing except film the incident with their phone.  The incident which lasts over 3 minutes is very disturbing and we have chosen not to post it on LGBT Weekly.  You can view the entire incident on the Bilerico Project at http://www.bilerico.com/2011/04/transwoman_severely_beaten_at_baltimore_mcdonalds.php.

LGBT activists in Maryland are investigating the incident and two arrests have already been made.  This is the third reported incident at McDonald’s involving a transgender person getting attacked.  If you want to tell McDonald’s that you are not “loving it,” please call in your comments to 1-800-244-6227, the lines are open 7 days a week from 7 am to 7 pm CST.
