Grief, death, bereavement, and loss do not discriminate based on gender identity or sexual orientation. Limited attention has been given to the bereaved partners of transgender and gender non-conforming persons (TGNC). Despite recent efforts to protect the rights of TGNC persons, the death of a TGNC partner is often complicated, marked by family members and friends who might never have known or refused to acknowledge the deceased in his, her, or their preferred gender. The present study adopted a single case study design to examine the death of a TGNC spouse through the unique lens of a bereaved partner.
