Aimee Stephens — the trans woman whose civil rights case was heard on October 8, 2019, by the U.S. Supreme Court, which is expected to decide on it imminently — has died. She was 59.
Stephens had long suffered from kidney disease.
NBC reports Stephens died after being placed in at-home hospice care, and was surrounded by her family, including her wife Donna, at the time of her death Tuesday.
