I wanted to mark it here, but don't want to be the cisprivileged person who co-opts something that is, really, a memorial.
The TDOR link above contains lots of information, including where you can find real, in-person events today in your area.
A quick Google search will give you names of those we memorialize, statistics, and things written by people who know better than I do why this day is necessary.
And here are a few links that have been shared with me today by other folks. If you have other links to add, please feel free to comment.
- Transgender Murders 50 Percent Higher Than Gays, Lesbians In July
- We Matter! Transgender Day of Remembrance 2013
- Transgender, Dead, and Forgotten
Day 20 of our month of gratitude: I am thankful for the lives of both those who have died and those who have survived, as I am hopeful that the epidemic of violence — both individual and systemic — against transpeople will end.
