Chapter 5 turns to the murders of Lisa Lambert, Brandon Teena, and Phillip DeVine on New Year’s Eve in Humboldt, Nebraska in 1993. While much of the scholarship in trans and media studies have focused on the implications of Brandon Teena’s death (and cinematic portrayals), this chapter narrates the Humboldt killings from the perspective of black and disabled DeVine.
