She was found Friday evening inside her home by North Adams police.

"To know her is to be forever changed, to be forever blessed", said Jahaira DeAlto, trans/intersex activist.

Her gender identity was just a part of who she was, but she certainly made her mark as a trans advocate as she founded two pageants in New England to celebrate transgender women.

Christa, a trans woman, is the first known transgender murder victim of this year. "It is simply the result of experiencing violence", DeAlto said.

A knife was missing from the butcher block in the kitchen, and the scene was consistent with Mark Steele-Knudslien's account, police said.

Dozens of mourners gathered in North Adams at a vigil for Steele-Knudslien on Monday, the Berkshire Eagle reported.

"We wanted to highlight her as a human being". He said he "snapped" and struck her multiple times with a hammer before stabbing her in the back and hiding her body in their basement. However, we don't talk about the LGBQ/T homicides that occur in relation to domestic violence.

Her husband, Mark Steele-Knudslien, has been charged with her murder.

Mark went to the station Friday night and allegedly told Adams police he had "done something bad" and extended his arms to be cuffed. It was the city's first homicide in more than four years.

"It's been an wonderful reaction to a tragedy that people have had".

Meanwhile, Adkins has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help cover funeral costs.

The couple had lived in Adams for several years before moving to North Adams, where they were living on Veazie Street.

Today, we spoke with a woman who told me it was Christa and her kindness that helped her to come out as a trans woman. "I'm still a bit shocked". Marianne Winters, executive director of Safe Passage, said her organization is concerned about a 2018 ballot question, put forward by the conservative Massachusetts Family Institute, that would repeal the state's recent transgender rights law.

The Elizabeth Freeman Center offers counseling, a shelter, court advocates, safety planning, and a variety of other services.

"I want to see this person be put away for good", Rash said.

The LGBTQ community is based around equality and fight for rights, Wahr added. There was more reported violence against transgender people in 2017 than any year in nearly a decade, according to a report released by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, an educational arm of a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization.
