Transgender Day of Remembrance is tomorrow. It is a day to remember those who have been killed because of their transgender identity, often trans women of color. In 2010, it was observed in more than 185 cities in over 20 countries, and it has continued to grow. Please look for an event in your area if you are interested in participating. Many cities will hold a candlelight vigil, march, food drive, or other activity in remembrance of those we have lost.
