Monday, November 20, 2023, will be the 22nd annual International Transgender Day of Remembrance. This day memorializes the lives lost in acts of anti-transgender violence and encourages awareness of the continued violence endured by transgender people.
“Transgender Day of Remembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase transgender people – sometimes in the most brutal ways possible – it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice.” – Gwendolyn Ann Smith, founder of TDOR.
We encourage you take a moment of silence when you are able.
