Superimposed on a tombstone are the words 'Eleventh International Transgender Day of Remembrance November 20, 2009'. There is a trans symbol in the top left corner.

Today is the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. Today we remember those who have been lost over the past year, and in the years before. Those whose names we know, and those who died anonymously. We remember everyone whose lives were cut short because who they were wasn’t okay with someone else. Today we gather together and reflect alone. We remember, and we continue to work to make the world survivable.

Here is a list of the 162 people whose murders were reported (via Helen). There are surely many more who we can’t identify to mourn, and we must remember them also.

I will link to relevant blog posts as I find them.
