"Charm"

This post has been late (too late) in coming.

In the latter part of 2010 (Dec 3), just days after a popular entertainer registered her call for an end to discrimination at a World AIDS Day event,  a popular cross dresser known as "Charm" was found dead in the vicinity of the Half Way Tree.

According to a secondary source of information, "Charm" was in full drag at the time of her discovery, this was later confirmed by a passer-by from the GLBTQI community who was at the crime scene. The passer-by reported that a crowd had gathered there, among whom were persons jeering and laughing at the news that it was a cross dresser who had been murdered. "Charm" who reportedly had several visible stab wounds on her body was discovered by a woman who apparently took her young daughter to a nearby dark area, for her to relieve herself.

"Charm" may have been the victim of a 'link-up' or cruising gone bad, as she was known to "work" the streets at nights as a sex worker, on the cruising trails in that area.

My condolences go out to her friends and family.
