From Metro Weekly, 2005-File photo by Jeff Code
"Gopalan, 35, was found dead on the west side of the 2600 block of 11th Street NW, wearing makeup, a black and purple jacket, a gray shirt cut like a camisole and carrying high heels.
News of Gopalan’s death came during a week marked by several violent incidents directed at transgender individuals in the District. Part of the confusion surrounding the identity of Gopalan stemmed from the manner in which he was dressed at the time of his death." (Metro Weekly)
