Subject: The death of Tonette Lopez



The death of Tonette Lopez, Filipina activist for the Asian trans community.

We learn from Andrew Hunter of the tragic loss of Tonette Lopez, transactivist and human rights lawyer, who passed away the night of 29th April, 2005 in Manila. Andrew and Khartini Slamah have written a tribute to Tonette. I have added a tribute of my own. They are both on the Transgender ASIA website. We invite any who would like to add their own tribute to this extraordinary woman of the Asian trans-community to do so.
