Remembering Slain Transgender Teen Gwen Araujo

Gwen Araujo is a hero not many people know. She wasn't a politician or a lawyer — she wasn't even an activist, but her death changed many laws and many lives in the transgender community.

Araujo was born a healthy baby boy named Edward Araujo Jr., but Araujo never felt like a boy. Sylvia Guerrero, Araujo's mother, said before Araujo was born that she dreamed she had a daughter and preemptively named her Amber Rose.
