Let us not forget that Today November 20th isn't just the Observance of Universal Children's day but it is also Transgender Day of Remembrance.
LET US REMEMBER AND PRAY FOR THE INNOCENT SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES TO VIOLENCE AS A RESULT OF TRANSPHOBIA.
The international Transgender Day of Remembrance, has been observed annually on 20 November as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia. It is a day to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community around the world.
WHAT IS THE TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE?
The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester's death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. "The Transgender Day of Remembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase transgender people and by extension LGBT people -- sometimes in the most brutal ways possible -- it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice." *Transgender Day of Remembrance founder Gwendolyn Ann Jessy Smith
