Transgender Day of Remembrance

The official day of remembrance, at least here in the U.S., is almost over. But that's OK. We need to remember - I need to remember - every day of the year. And more - I need to speak out against transgender violence, whether that's hate speech, emotional and legal violence, physical violence, or any other kind of deliberate, direct, indirect or unthinking marginalization and minimization. I need to do it even when it's uncomfortable for me to do it. Because my discomfort is pretty small compared to what these human beings, my brothers, sisters and siblings, deal with. 

These stories say more than I can
