Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. While I personally have my issues with participating in it, due to the intersectional nature of trans murders, I feel it would be remiss not to acknowledge it.

Natalie Reed has a blog post of a similar nature. It contains links to voices of trans women of colour instead of her own voice. Instead of copying from there, I’m going to link instead.

My only comment is one I made on Twitter this afternoon which appears to be quite popular on tumblr:

Just because it’s Transgender Day of Remembrance, doesn’t mean you should forget about trans people for the other 364 days of the year.
