Transgender Day of Remembrance coming up!

Postby MadCat on Mon Nov 14, 2011 11:07 pm

Transgender Day of Remembrance is Nov, 20th, "a time to honor the memory of those whose lives were lost due to anti-transgender violence." The list of lives lost keeps growing every day. Let's hope for more education and acceptance in the future!

Sadly, the closest one to me is on the other side of the state. Sigh. But I'm still using this day (heck, the last few days) to remember the thousands of lives that have been lost around the world to transhatred and transphobic violence. All because they wanted to live their lives, be happy, be themselves. It's a terrible thing, to have to hide your very identity for fear of everything from rejection by loved ones, to murder by strangers.

What's worse is that many of these cases go unsolved and largely ignored; the innocent victims are mocked, dehumanized, and their grieving loved ones told 'they had it coming' or 'it was their own fault'... simply for wanting to live. I can only wait and wish for the day when all people are truly allowed to be themselves, accepted as who they really are, and allowed to live peacefully and free, without fear, without pain.
