Transgender Woman Buried As Man By Idaho Family
[su_right_ad]Jennifer Gable was buried as Geoffrey Gable by a family that couldn’t accept their child who lived as a transgender for the past seven years.
Gone was Gable’s long, wavy brown hair and smokey eye shadow shown in several Facebook photos.
In her place, friends found the body of Geoffrey Charles Gable in a suit at an Oct. 20 service at the Magic Valley Funeral Home.
Her hair had been cut short and a paid obituary published in a local newspaper skipped a decade of her life transitioning to Jennifer.
The obituary detailed Geoffrey’s love for baseball, jazz, singing with a “nice tenor voice,” but it also mentioned a failed marriage to a woman.
“She would not have wanted to relive the horrible life of Geoffrey,” her friend for the past two years, Brandan Klosterman, told the Daily News. “She wouldn’t want to be buried that way…
“What her parents have done is just a horrible thing,” Klosterman added. “There was a lot of bigotry from her family and I don’t even think they talked to her anymore.”[su_csky_ad]
