Thanks to Nancy Nangeroni, the May 7, 1997 GenderTalk radio interview that was done with Gabrielle Pickett in the wake of the 'not guilty' verdict of her twin sister's murderer is now available from the GenderTalk archives for your listening pleasure.
I had the pleasure of hanging out with Nancy in Philly when her radio broadcast partner Gordene MacKenzie was part of my 2006 Trinity Award class along with Chicago's Miranda Stevens-Miller.
Nancy has also made available on her blog a previously written 1997 account by her of the events surrounding the Chanelle Pickett murder. It's interesting reading as a time capsule of those events and includes some details not published elsewhere.
There is also a rumor circulating in the transgender community that Gabrielle has subsequently met the same fate as her twin sister. Once again, if anyone has seen her or is in contact with Gabrielle, please tell her to either contact me, someone in the Boston area or anyone in the community and let us know she's alive. If you have information that the rumors are true, then let someone know what her ultimate fate was.
It also speaks to what I said when I wrote about Marti finding the YouTube video of the Pickett twins 1990's Jenny Jones interview. We don't have to, nor should we wait until November to remember our sisters and brothers who have died at the hands of others due to anti-transgender violence.
