Trans Lawyer Remembered

Yesterday I posted about Nina Kanagasingham and Jane Fae's criticisms of the judge who was handling the case. The reason Kanagasingham found herself in a court was in connection with the alleged murder of David Burgess. Burgess was himself trans and died after falling under a train (Kanagasingham is alleged to have pushed him). Burgess was also trans and also identified as Sonia - but maintained David as his professional identity. Burgess was an influential asylum lawyer and the Guardian included a lengthy obituary on his life yesterday. It's worth a read.
