Transgender Day of Remembrance

On the one hand, I don’t know that I’ve known any transgender people who have died through suicide or violence from others. But there’s a very real chance that I have, and simply not known that they were transgender (they didn’t know at the time, they didn’t trust me enough to tell me, it was none of my business, etc.) before they died. (I’ve also not known very many people who have died in these manners, either.)

But I do know and count as friends a number of transgender (including genderqueer, genderfluid, etc.) people today, and I’m very glad to know each of them, and to know them as they are. As horrible as this world can be, I hope that through ever-increasing education, visibility, and acceptance, each of them can continue to be true to themselves, and to stay safe and healthy, and are people I know for a long time to come.

Sometime between September 3rd and September 23rd, I thought this stuff was interesting. You might think so too!
