2016 Transgender Day of Remembrance and Visibility in Orlando

 

Sadly, each year, we come together to denounce violence against the transgender community and to declare that we will remain a visible and viable part of society.

Alarmingly, violence against transgender people is rising each year. In 2015, a transgender person was murdered somewhere in the world every 3 days. This year, the murders of 23 transgender people have been reported in the US, making this the deadliest year on record. Almost all of the victims were people of color, and the vast majority of those were black transgender individuals.
