One a month

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...

I love comments! But I do moderate them, so if your comment doesn't show up immediately-I'll get to it soon.
