AP, Florida Media Call Transgender Homicide Victim A “Man Dressed As A Woman” | Blog | Media Matters for America:

“The Associated Press violated its own guidelines while reporting on the homicide of a transgender woman in Florida, joining several state-based news outlets in misgendering the victim and referring to her as a ‘man dressed as a woman.’ The incident is the latest in a trend of media mistreatment of transgender victims of violence.”
