Brandon dating website
In 1993, faced with multiple warrants for theft and forgery, Teena left his hometown and headed to a place where nobody knew that he was biologically female.
Just before his 21st birthday, Teena arrived in Humboldt, Nebraska, where he sought a fresh start in a community where he could solely identify as a man.
Despite his attempt to identify as a man, everyone in town found out that Teena was biologically female when his arrest details were published in the local paper, along with his birth name.
Shortly thereafter at a Christmas Eve party, Teena was confronted by Lotter and Nissen.
He also began dating 19-year-old Lana Tisdel, but money was still an issue and Teena began forging checks again. When Tisdel showed up to pay his bail, much to her surprise, she found Brandon housed in the female section of the jail.
Brandon Teena, a young transgender Midwesterner, was attacked and murdered in 1993.
His story is the subject of the film 'Boys Don't Cry' and has brought wide attention to hate crimes against the trans community.
Afterward, they drove back to Nissen’s house, threatening to kill Teena if he reported the incident.
Teena snuck out of a bathroom window and went to Tisdel’s house. Teena arrived at the Falls City Hospital emergency room, where a rape kit was conducted, and filed a police report.
