Brandon Teena (born Teena Renae Brandon; December 12, 1972 December 31, 1993) was an American trans man who was raped and murdered in Humboldt, Nebraska.

His life and death were the subject of the Academy Award-winning 1999 film Boys Don't Cry, which was partially based on the 1998 documentary film The Brandon Teena Story. Both films also illustrated that legal and medical discrimination contributed to Teena's violent death.

Teena's murder, along with that of Matthew Shepard, led to increased lobbying for hate crime laws in the United States.
