Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance honoring the transgender people we’ve lost, often due to violence. This year, at least 23 transgender women were murdered in the United States and 81 worldwide. News outlets are reporting this to be the worst on record. Click here to see the international list of those we’ve lost and find a memorial/celebration of life near you.

While social media sharing is not enough – we encourage you to get involved in your community to make it safer for transgender people, especially transgender women of color – here are some of our favorite inspirational pieces of content this year:
