Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) is November 20th every year. This day is used to remember and recognize the lives of transgender individuals lost to hate-fueled violence. This year, there were at least 350 murders in the community worldwide. Many people's murders go unreported or not reported properly, so the exact number of how many individuals were murdered never really will be accurate. While we recognize and mourn our trans* siblings around the world, it is easier (for my sake) to recognize the 47 lives that were taken in the United States. A compiled list for everyone around the world will be provided at the end.
I wish that I had her
Here in my arms
Where I know she’d have safety
Safe from all harm.
Instead she’s alone,
Well, who really knows?
i spend the day out, enjoying my time,
and when i come home, i slowly find,
that all of my soul comes not from the heart,
Something that I never thought I would have to do was help a friend leave home after being kicked out. Unfortunately, I had to do exactly that last week.
