Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance, which recognizes transgender people killed in "acts of hatred and violence," is today. The day began 15 years ago, when a candlelight vigil for Rita Hester, a trans woman who had been murdered, led to the original "Remembering Our Dead" project, a list of people killed because of anti-transgender violence. Numerous events, including vigils and ceremonies, are taking place across the world.
