20th November: Trans Day of Remembrance

In the past 12 months, from 1st Oct 2015 to 30th Sept 2016, 295 trans and gender diverse people were reported murdered in 33 countries worldwide. This brings the total number of reported killings since 1st Jan 2008 to 2,264.

On the 20th November, Trans Day of Remembrance, we will remember those who have lost their lives to violence. And stand in solidarity with those worst affected by this violence – migrants, people of colour and sex workers – to call for an end to transphobic hate crime and to mourn those in our community who we have lost.
