Today we remember those we’ve lost to anti-transgender violence.
If you don’t want to be alone today, there are a list of observances and vigils here.
If you want to be alone, but still need someone to talk to, Trans Lifeline is a non-profit support line for transgender people and people struggling with gender identity. They’re available by phone in the US (877-565-8860) and Canada (877-330-6366).
happy trans day of remembrance to all my trans brothers, trans sisters, and nonbinary siblings! I honor those we’ve lost and continue to fight for those we haven’t. you are important, and valid, and ily
I got misgendered yesterday as a matter of fact almost everyday. I guess that’s were my own struggles come from. The other night a sweet 5 year old little girl came to me with love and admiration. She said. You are so beautiful but why do you sound like a boy. I said thank you princess. Well that’s my voice and I love my voice. She said ok and said it’s ok you are a girl but you sound like a boy. She then gave me a huge hug and didn’t leave my side the whole night. Those are the moments that make me not hate my male traits. I still don’t present as female on my everyday. It’s a constant struggle that I put on myself. I can go ahead and do it but my own fears stop me. One day I will fully be there. And that day I won’t look back. On this day of remembrance all I have done is be grateful while being sad for all the lives lost so that one day we will all be able to be free and live our lives without hate. @transisbeautiful@transtipsfortranspeople@transgenderadvice@transbodypositivity@girleuphoria

today is transgender day of remembrance and we remember
In 2016, there have been 26 known murders of trans people in the U.S. — more than half of them Black women. This number already surpasses the number of reported murders in 2015. On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we mourn and honor the trans-identified people who’ve been killed because of their gender identity or expression.
The Trans+ Umbrella covers all kind of forms of gender expression! It’s great to know so many different, unique people exist under all these equally valid terms. The world isn’t just black and white!! Sorry if we’ve missed any off of the list!
I refuse to be silenced, and I refuse to live in fear. I’ve worked too hard to finally feel comfortable in my own skin. It’s unfortunate… no the word unfortunate puts this way too kindly. It’s horrendous that your reaction to something you don’t understand is to murder someone, to make another HUMAN feel unwelcome to live on this earth. I pity you, but I refuse to waste my valuable energy on those who refuse to be educated or attempt to understand. I’m going to do my best to use that energy to be a better and stronger ally from this moment forward to my fellow brothers and sisters and other deserving humans in the trans community. I may be tiny, but I’m much more mighty than my stature has lead you to believe.
