Breaking News! Governor Brown Signs Respect After Death Act

Victory! Governor Brown Signs AB 1577 into law!


We send love, healing, release, peace and power to the spirit of Our brother friend Uncle Christopher Lee, whose death and misgendering of his death certificate was the catalyst for this bill.

We went to Transgender Law Center in Winter 2013 when we found that the coroners had misgendered Christopher as female on his death certificate. We want to thank Ilona TurnerMasen DavisSasha BuchertMark Daniel SnyderDanny Kirchoff, Matt Wood, Jim Woods and many others at Transgender Law Center for you being fierce allies and advocates…thank you to Jo Michael at EQCA and Gibran Maciel with Assemblymember Toni Atkins office – to whom of course we are grateful for championing the bill.

An Invitation to Contribute

Christopher touched many people from many different communities.  We are hoping that if you were one of these individuals, you will be willing to contribute to this blog.  Please share your poems, writings, photos, spoken word and other remembrances.  In addition to text and images, this site will support audio and video files.  We hope that this blog will be a living memory of Christopher where we can collectively share our thoughts and memories. Eventually, we are hoping to eventually publish them in an anthology.
