WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Georgina Beyer, a trailblazing New Zealand politician who in 1999 became the world’s first openly transgender member of Parliament, died Monday at the age of 65.

Friends of Beyer said she died peacefully in hospice care. They did not immediately give a cause of death, although Beyer had previously suffered from kidney failure and underwent a kidney transplant in 2017.

""""They did not immediately give a cause of death""" The Suicide Rate amongst the "Gender Confused"...is through the Roof. The Powers that be...do not care if your child kills themself...as long as it adds a few more hook-up columns to the Trans Dating Site....all is "Good".... with them.... Don't pull back the curtain....Cowards, you will not like what you see.
