Nov. 1, 2013: Transgender Day of Remembrance This Month

November 1, 2013

A trans friend posted this link from the Huffington Post on Facebook: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/courtney-odonnell/transgender-day-of-remembrance-2013_b_4167200.html. I know it’s not a “happy” post; kind of morbid, in fact. But it’s a reminder that there is still violence against trans people everywhere, even where there are laws in place that are meant to protect them. Nov. 20 is on my calendar. I don’t know any of the people listed here; but as a transwife and a transgender ally, I’ll pause, think of them, and be thankful that courageous people are taking a stand for who they are, so that others can be who they are.
