Aubri Esters treated with compassion those whose lives many consider disposable, such as drug users she sometimes could save - and sometimes couldnt.
I have lost a lot of friends to overdoses, many in front of my eyes, she once said during an academic panel discussion as she pushed for safe injection facilities that could reduce risks for those coping with addiction.
Informed by her own experiences using drugs and living on the streets, and fierce when necessary, she let her eloquent voice ring out in City Hall, on a state commission, and in groups advocating on behalf of those who suffer, often unseen, at societys neglected margins.
On Thursday, Ms. Esters was found dead at home after her mother, concerned when she couldnt reach her by phone, asked police to perform a wellness check at her apartment near Boston Medical Center.

Am I allowed to take a guess?
Instead of being diagnosed as mentally ill and getting treatment, she was allowed to kill herself with full wokeness.
“A transgender woman who previously had been homeless and who was disabled to the point of needing a walker, she was candid about having used drugs, about her own sometimes uncomfortable experience in methadone treatment, and about the multiple kinds of discrimination and harassment she and others face.”
Good guess "safe drug use" failed her
Can't you smell that smell
Oooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you"
Sounds like bad life choices. Why would someone advocate for something so destructive?
Think of it as evolution in action.
More like devolution in action.
One of the disturbing aspects to this story is that until you let the cat out the bag...I didn’t know that was a dude!
I’d put my money on overdose.....any one disagree!!!
Are we not men?
For a second, I thought we had lost Geddy Lee.
Deeply misguided soul. Prayers for HIM.
She was such a pretty man!
There are more coddled addicts than ever working and playing alongside young people across the country and getting them hooked on drugs. The more addicts among others in the general population, the more the problem spreads.
That dude does look like a lady...
He/she/it A transgendered it, who previously had been homeless and who was disabled to the point of needing a walker, she was candid about having used drugs, about her own sometimes uncomfortable experience in methadone treatment, and about the multiple kinds of discrimination and harassment she and others face.
So it was some type of hero/heroine which killed itself?
Whoa, wait... Are they burying a penis or a vagina, here?
I’m so confused.
Watch out for that oak tree.
