Transgender Day of Remembrance

Posted by Kohaku , in FABULOUS, Real Life Nov 20 2013 · 837 views

an important message transgender
Today I am posting a bonus comic from the internet. I also have a few words to share with you today thanks to my boyfriend Aleks.
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), occurs annually on November 20th at the conclusion of Transgender Awareness Week. It is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia and anti-transgender violence. Even now, anti-transgender hatred is largely ignored and many of these murders are still unsolved. TDoR serves to raise awareness of hate crimes against trans*gender people as well as to honor the lives of those who might otherwise be forgotten. Transgender Day of Remembrance vigils offer an opportunity for trans*people and their allies to memorialize these victims of transphobia and prejudice.

It sucks that this has to be a problem.  :(  But I guess people always have to find some reason to hate others who are unlike them.


Honestly, while I know of bullying and such, I can't recall any murders that involved transgenders, which I guess is just another failing if there are so many.  Here's to a future where that's a 0 statistic and everybody can be happy being who they want to be!

Sadly there are a lot.


According to the Trans Murder Monitoring Project there have been as many as 1,123 reported murders of transgender people in the last four years. However, these murders are under-reported, vigil organizers said, as this number does not include regions of the world from which data is not available, including large sections of the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe, as well as parts of South America.


I do hope we can have a future where people are accepted for who they are.
