San Francisco Trans Woman Accused Of Stabbing Boyfriend To Death

Akira Tajah Jackson (pictured), a 24-year-old Bay Area trans youth leader at Transgender Ladies Initiating Sisterhood, is suspected of killing on-and-off boyfriend Alan Gray, who was stabbed with a large kitchen knife Thursday morning. Gray, who met Jackson while she was working as a dancer at Diva’s in San Francisco, called 911 to say Jackson assaulted him; prosecutors are calling the attack a domestic dispute. Gray was pronounced dead at the hospital after stab wounds wounds were found in his chest, though I’m still unclear why either CBS News or the San Francisco Chronicle found Jackson’s trans identity material to the story.
