Allen Andrade convicted of first-degree murder and a bias-motivated crime in the slaying of Angie Zapata. (CNN link, and good god, their reporters can't copyedit for crap).

This is a landmark case for everybody with an interest in the alternatively-sexual community: Angie's death was specifically due to her being transgendered, according to Mr. Andrade's own testimony. And this was the first time that a state's hate crime statutes were used in the prosecution of a transgendered person's demise.

Every so often, America? You give me hope.
