Transgender Day of Remembrance

On this day, we remember the recorded 368 transgender people whose lives were taken from them this past year and the countless more who have not been reported. These were beloved members of an international marginalized community which bears endless scapegoating and discrimination across many cultural boundaries. They were taken from us before their time due to baseless fear and hatred.

Members of the transgender community face immense adversity and still have the bravery to be ourselves; in this climate, there is no act more radical.

Siblings taken from us, you are missed. You are remembered. You deserved so much more than what this world gave you.

Read the list of those who lost their lives to anti-transgender violence.

    I read the list above several times, and the causes of death – all were very violent showing much rage. Brazil, Mexico and the US seemed to have more than most of the other countries, but I did not count in depth. You are so correct that transgender and others in the LGBTQ community, regardless of the danger, “…face immense adversity and still have the bravery to be ourselves…there is no more act more radical.”
    Someday not too far off into the future, I would love to see you write an article for The Atlantic or The Washington Post for one can hear and feel the heart that is in your words. This past week,
    I watched Paula Stone Williams in a video on the Wise Women Summit and learned a bit more about her and her story. Very Informative and lovely.
    Know that I support you in any and every way that I can and that you need that is within my power.
