Angie’s portrait reads: On July 15, 2008, Angie Zapata was beaten and bludgeoned to death after Allen Andrade, her murderer, discovered she was transgender. He had referred to Angie as an ‘it’ in his arrest affidavit. Andrade was found guilty of first degree murder and hate crimes – the first time a trans murder received this distinction. Angie was 18 years old. This occurred in Greeley, Colorado.
