Transgender Day of Remembrance…and resilience. No more transphobia. Stop transphobic racist violence. No. More. Murders. Since 1999, November 20 is a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia. It is a day to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. Trans politics continue to highlight the importance of seeing transphobic violence as inherently connected to race, gender, and class. This is reflected in the disproportionate instances of violence against trans women of color in general, black and latina transgender women in particular. Find a vigil in your community today to remember those lost to to transphobic violence.
