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.
