Transgender Day of Remembrance

Tomorrow, November 20, is the 12th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.

According to the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition , "The annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) memorializes individuals who have been killed throughout the world in the previous year because of anti-transgender hatred. Between 2008 and 2009, at least 163 people were murdered because of their gender identity or gender expression.  Unfortunately, we do not have good numbers for 2009-2010."

The Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association, has issued a statement on the TDOR at this link.

May we always have the courage and compassion to stand on the side of love with our transgender sisters and brothers.
