Transgender Day Of Remembrance 2020
Today, on #TransgenderDayOfRemembrance, we remember the lives of our brothers and sisters lost to transphobic violence. We remember and honour those who’ve been lost to hatred and prejudice as we remind ourselves of the challenges that transgender people continue to face every single day.
The trans experience is independent of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual or any part of the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Some may even consider conventional sexual orientation labels inapplicable to them. We could learn a lot from our trans and non-binary folks about how to love.
On #TDOR, we promise to continue raising awareness of the realities that trans and non-binary folks face. It is a day to commit ourselves to stand proudly alongside them, as they’ve done for everyone, in the fight for inclusion, recognition & safety.
To those still struggling, know that we stand with you and we will continue the fight for justice and for equality. We remember the names of those who’ve passed and we carry on in your memory. 🙏 💙🤍❤️
