This chapter continues with the inscription of trans lives, bodies, and queer desires into the domain of law through femicides. Bringing together trans and natrans femicides, I look at the political life organized around the deaths of sex/gender-transgressive and trans people. The chapter focuses specifically on trials for trans femicides, which contribute to the mobilization of legal claims about “hate crimes,” a category of crime that has not yet passed into the Turkish criminal law, and on the elimination of “unjust provocation,” a mitigating factor in the culprit’s sentencing. These court cases constitute a crucial site to explore the intimate yet conflicted relationship between law and justice within the transnational context of LGBTI+ politics.
