Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance, so my birthday wish is to take time to remember all of the precious lives of transgender folks lost too soon. Too many suffered through hate, and so many were people of color. But none were disposable, and we'll never forget them. That's what Transgender Day of Remembrance is all about.
You can visit the Transgender Day of Remembrance page to learn more about everyone whose memories we're honoring today. With transgender murders on the rise, there are many lost lives to remember. Gwendolyn Ann Smith has written a great piece on why we remember.
San Francisco is observing Transgender Day of Remembrance with a rally, a march and a service, which all starts at City Hall at 5 pm. Learn more details about events happening worldwide here.
Let's keep honoring each other, and building a safer world together.
