Yesterday was TDoR, where we take a moment and light a candle in remembrance of our fallen trans brothers and sisters over the past year.
This year 331 transgender people died, some were murdered, hanged, lynched and died by suicide.
We say their names so they are not forgotten, they are forever in our hearts.
This year we lost someone locally, which hits hard.
The majority of those killed are trans women of colour. We need to do better!
100% of cases are missed, I should imagine that sadly the number of deaths is higher than recorded.
We need to do better for the trans community, no human should be living in fear just because they are brave enough to live in their authentic truths.
