Today is the tenth annual Transgender Day of Rememberance.

A transgendered person is 1500 times more likely to be murdered than a cisgendered person. Today is a day for remembering them, particularly the people who have been murdered in the last year for no reason other than the fact that they're transgendered.

As [livejournal.com profile] shemale notes, it's not a day for celebration, it's not a fesitval, it's not a goddamn potluck, particularly if you're part of the transphobic problem that enables these murders. HRC, I'm looking at you, and in case you're wondering why you get no money from me you treat transfolk are treated has alot to do with it.

So take a moment and remember. And the renew your resolve to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, and do something about it.
