Events for Transgender Day of Remembrance
For the past 20 years, November 20th has been held as a day to honor the transgender, nonbinary, and two spirit people who died simply for living their lives authentically. Studies have shown transgender women of color experience the highest rates of violence and murder of all minority groups in the country. So today, not only do we mourn the loss of so many lives across the world, we must also celebrate the resilience of gender diverse people.
