Our day to remember - National Transgender Day of Remembrance

The 9th Annual National Transgender Day of Remembrance was celebrated on campuses and cities across the United States today. There are many ways that people can choose to remember, and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has two posts on their blog to commemorate this day of awareness about the hatred and violence that has led to the death of so many transgender people.

This link will point you to an announcement of an event that HRC participated in, as well as two videos from transgender ministers.

As well, the HRC blog includes this piece by a transsexual Latino man.

Other national organizations such as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the Task Force (NGLTF) posted messages to honor transgender persons no longer with us.
