Police Say Michigan LGBTQ Rights Activist Set His Own Home On Fire

According to a report by Huffpost, Michigan police claim that a transgender, gay rights activist attempted to fabricate a hate crime by setting his home on fire, while the man's attorney has questioned the supporting evidence.

Attorney Daniel Barnett claims the evidence is circumstantial and doesnโ€™t provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Nikki Joly set the August 2017 fire that killed five pets at his home in Jackson.

A local newspaper reportedly selected Joly to be Jacksonโ€™s citizen of the year in 2018.

Joly also helped open the cityโ€™s first gay community center, organized its first gay pride festival and helped pass a nondiscrimination ordinance.
