(TW: Death mention, violence mention, suicide mention) 

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

It’s Transgender Day of Remembrance. 

Today, we remember and mourn the people we lost to hate crimes and violence, the people who were killed or driven to suicide due to transphobia. 

Violence against trans people is often ignored by mainstream media, so this day is meant to raise awareness - but it’s also meant to remind us that violence is more than sad statistics. The world isn’t just losing a number each year, we are losing siblings, parents, friends, partners, kids, neighbors. We are losing beautiful precious souls. 

I encourage you to honour the lost lives today, and to express your love and support to one another in our community. Be kind to each other. 

You could save a life. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom
