Transgender Day of Remembrance

More than 300 trans people have been murdered so far this year. In their own words, two activists share what today means to the community.
I'm dedicating today to trans people without a platform, and those murdered simply for being trans
The 295 (at least) trans* people who were murdered this year alone were sons, daughters, siblings, friends, parents, students, teachers, lovers. They brought light to the dark places they stepped and their presence raised awareness. But they were deemed to be "other", to be "wrong", to be inferior and for that they were killed.
On Transgender Day of Remembrance we remember trans people who have lost their lives in the face of ignorance, oppression
