International Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is the 10th annual International Transgender Day of
Remembrance, commemorating the lives of transgender people lost to
anti-transgender violence over the past year.

Advocates have counted more than 50 transgender people killed
already in 2008. Organizers of the Day of Remembrance are guided by
this thought:

“Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.”
— Santayana

Please honor the transgender and gender-noncomforming people in our
community who face incredible odds and obstacles in being their
true selves. Observe a moment of silence, then take action. You can
