One a month Friday, Nov 20 2009 

Today is the eleventh annual Transgender Day of Rememberance. Each year, we memorialize those transpeople who have died from hatred or prejudice. And each year, we add more names to the list. Because on average, one transperson dies each month.

I long for the year when we can say “We don’t need to memorialize another death this time.” But I don’t see that happening anytime soon…

Transgender Day of Remembrance Monday, Nov 19 2007 

Tomorrow is the Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is a day every year set aside to remember those transpeople who died this year, so far. Reading the list is sobering; reading the causes of death frightening.

The worst part? That we have to have a day like this, every year.
