Trans Day of Remembrance

Another trans person has been killed.

Ceremonies like the one that took place at this college chapel remind many of the hundreds of individuals who have lost their lives since 1970 due to violence against transgender people.

One of those people was Teish Cannon. She was not forgotten during the private ceremony behind these doors. Cannon was shot and killed last weekend. It's a crime that the district attorney's office will have to determine whether or not was a hate crime...

I emailed a dear, very loved friend about this. "It's fucked up that we are still getting killed," he emailed back.

Yes, it is.

Remember. Never forget.
