HomeConnectTransgender Day of Remembrance

In 2016 alone, at least 26 trans women, trans men, non-binary, and GNC people have been violently killed in the United States, almost all of them trans women of color. Internationally, the numbers are much higher.

To honor those we have lost, Transfaith has created a slideshow of the fallen, and collected links about dealing with grief, practicing self care, and the vibrant and ongoing activism of Trans people of color, especially Trans women of color.

We know that these numbers cannot capture the losses not named here, those who were lost to suicide, those who died because of medical negligence or poverty, those murdered behind bars.

This TDOR, instead of only memorializing those who are no longer with us, we highlight those fighting to keep us alive.
