PLEASE NOTE: We have active topics dedicated to the ongoing on-site concerns. I ask that regardless of your position or opinion in that, please leave that for those threads. I cannot make anyone do so, but considering the nature of the thread I would hope we can all see sense at focusing on those lost and the violence trans people face year round.

Today is the 20th November; the Trans Day of Remembrance.

It is a day where we remember the trans people reported murdered between last year until now. Where we reflect on the violence that trans people face simply through existing. The Trans Day of Remembrance came about off the back off the murder of Rita Hester - an African American trans woman:



Rita was stabbed to death in her own apartment on 28 November 1998, and her murder remains unsolved. Her death came just weeks after the murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming roused a national discussion on hate crimes against gay people, yet Rita's murder garnered no such response from the public. Her murder and the lack of media attention to her death drove a candlelight vigil to begin in San Francisco the next year.
It also fueled the creation of a web project entitled “Remembering Our Dead” which tells the story of transgender people from around the globe who have been murdered out of prejudice and hate. Their list goes back to the 1970s, and documents the losses our community has felt over many years of mistreatment and marginalization.
it is from this project - Remembering Our Dead - that the Trans Day of Remembrance came about.

In the past year there have been 331 reported murders of trans and gender-diverse people.

Traditionally the names of those trans people murdered since last year would be read out. In place and to suit this forum, I will manually list them below, by month, starting with October-November 2018 and updating during the day. Where you are able (note below), please take time to pause on some and spare some thought for them. Give pause to the importance of rebuking transphobia wherever it is present. That it is something that should never be accepted, dismissed or diminished.

Violence and discrimination against trans people has no place in modern society.

Firstly, a disparaging thought, then a hateful word followed, for some, by physical violence. Remembering those who have been killed or driven to suicide cannot bring them back. However, in remembering those who had their lives cut short this year, we need to remind everyone where it starts. We are not born to hate. We must remember.
- Caroline Merce

Please note that this list includes details of death. I have not censored the causes of death, as I believe it is important to face the reality behind each victim and the violence they faced.

This concludes the list of the 331 trans and gender-diverse people reported murdered since the last Trans Day of Remembrance. As others have mentioned, this does not account for all trans people murdered, nor does it account for trans people driven to suicide. It is important we remember those whose names we will never know, while remembering those that we do.

The hours spent reading and writing the list have been emotional to say the least. In both extremes. Each person on that list has a face, many of which you can find with a search. I urge you to do so. Violence against trans people is heartbreaking, but we should not shy away from it. Trans people that lived who they were despite knowing the risk, who didn't let it diminish their pride. In turn, we must not let it diminish ours. It must strengthen our resolve to stamp out transphobia where we see it, and berid spaces of those who would do us harm.

This is not a joke. Even in America you have African American trans women being beaten, shot and burned alive in cars. Trans people elsewhere being stabbed and left in locked rooms to bleed out. Beheaded. Tortured. There is no caveat or asterisk to "Transphobia has no place in society". No flex. No tolerance. If you try to affix one, you're part of the problem. There is no degree of acceptability to this.

Rest in peace to all of those lost.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please consider donating to LGBTQIA or trans charities:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is vitally important that we don't simply rest with remembrance, but we use their memory to further push back on transphobia.
If you see it, call it out. Don't tolerate it.
Support trans people.

Trans people are among society's most vulnerable, as this thread highlights. I hope - at least in America - we can work together during the next administration to ensure a federal government who can help protect them.

Surely that number is a lowball, I'd be shocked if there were actually none in China. Canada too.

Transphobia is ingrained in every facet of our society, from the structures that govern it to the media we consume. None of it can be tolerated. Even just a single person feeling emboldened by said transphobia is capable of taking an innocent life. A trans person surrounded by hatred might find living to be more painful than the alternative. There is a human cost to all of this, and if we allow any of it, that cost will continue to be paid.

Thank you for sharing this Kyuuji 💜

EDIT: And thanks to all the trans members here for speaking their truth. Wouldn't be who I am, and wouldn't have been able to properly support/stand up for one of my siblings, without you.

RIP to the victims of this senseless hatred

The "trans panic defense" is probably the worst legal nonsense I've ever studied. Fuck the person who used it to get away with a murder charge.

Heartbreaking, but thank you this is needed and it’s good to have some time to focus on the biggest issue facing the trans community, especially brown and black trans individuals.

Also it’s been mentioned but bears repeating anything one can do to spread the word and fight the still acceptable in some places (including parts of the United States) “trans panic” defense is needed. It’s one of the sickest concepts and the fact some courts will accept it is barbaric, but it’s one of those things we can visibly fight so it’s good to put a spotlight on it, especially when remembering those who have been murdered at an insane ratio when you realize we are truly a small minority yet suffer from one of the highest murder rates.

Remember, never forget, and hopefully if your reading this and your one of those people who think we are overly sensitive or just looking to be offended maybe your eyes will be opened to just how much danger we are in, and how any transphobia even small supposedly neglible amounts contribute to those numbers, because a lot of those killers think they have done nothing wrong and the amount of transphobia even casual that’s baked into everything from society to entertainment is why they feel okay with it.

Also like to point out we should remember the amount of articles and obituaries that both mid gender and deadname casually as if it’s okay, or if their identity wasn’t real, that only happens because the general public agrees and it’s the stuff so many think we are overly sensitive about that create the atmosphere that makes society think it’s okay.

That’s all from me, now to remember those we have lost, and a moment of silence and no posting from me in their memories.

Also, as a gender questioning person, statistics like this are terrifying to me. I don't know how I would/will have the courage to transition when seeing things like this.

Wow. Brazil is shockingly high. It reminds me of a topic at the old site about a trans person being beaten to death and it was filmed.

I didn't watch the video but the description of events was shocking and it's sad to know that such violence exists.

Shocking numbers, especially considering that there's a significant number not even noted in these statistics because it's never known. Good luck getting these numbers for Germany, for example - violence for reasons of identity or orientation is subsumed, and sometimes not even reported because police shrugs.

Nor are suicides properly counted, imo. If German neonazis write "Hitler would have gassed you" and worse on someone's door, and the continuous terror eventually breaks the victim, it'll be hidden in general suicide stats, rather than be counted as what it actually was.

Trans rights are human rights, and a lack of these human rights shows aspects of a society that are barbaric.

Trans Rights are Human Rights.

I'm donating to Mermaids and Stonewall today. It may not be much but I hope it helps make a difference to someone's life.

I can't begin to imagine the struggle with gender dysphoria and with all the prejudice on top of that.

Day by day the fight must be made. And one day it will be won. The threads on here may seem small but they have been invaluable for me to learn more and I will pass on what I have learned to others.
