Transgender Day Of Remembrance 2011

Today marks the 13th Annual Transgender Day Of Remembrance.  Please take a moment to remember those of us who have faced violence, hate and discrimination just for being the beautiful people that we are, and those who we have lost in the battle to violence or suicide.  No one deserves the isolation that being transgender can sometimes bring, from family, friends and community.  No one should have to walk their personal path to gender freedom on their own.  No one should have to die to live in truth.

Take a moment to stop by the International Transgender Day of Remembrance website to see if there are any events or vigils occurring in your area.  In the Tampa area there will be a candlelight vigil held at the University of Tampa Sykes Chapel Main Hall on Monday, November 21st at 8pm.  Please see their Facebook page for more information.
