Philadelphia’s 1st Out Trans Cop Misgendered In Death
This is kind of mind-blowing to me because I live in New Hope, PA, which is a northern suburb of Philadelphia and I haven’t heard anything about it until now. And I watch the smiling local news people every night.
It’s a story about Maria Gonzalez, who was Philadelphia’s first out trans cop. She joined the force in the late 60s, and came out as trans in 2004 four years before she retired. She died this year, on October 12, and this is how the ex-wife and daughter buried her.
Gonzalez’s ex-wife Chrissy Hernandez Gonzalez and their daughter Celina Huber organized the funeral services, despite being unsupportive of Gonzalez’s life as a woman. At the funeral, Gonzalez’s remains were in a wooden box decorated with blue and white flowers. A blue ribbon wrapped the flowers. Gonzalez was put to rest next to a metal pendant reading ‘Dad.’ Her PPD awards were displayed, but included her male name.
Sadly, they buried her as a man. But not everyone in her family was happy about this, and it goes on to describe the tension at the funeral with more back story.
