Epidemic: Transgender Day of Remembrance
2019-11-20

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


Today, on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, we mourn. In the United States alone, 22 known transgender and gender non-conforming individuals — almost all of whom were Black trans women — were tragically murdered this year. Targeted because of their identities in what the American Medical Association is categorizing as an "epidemic," each of these souls were robbed of their right to exist. In a world that far too often singles out transgender people, it is our duty to remember those lost - and do everything we can to ensure more are not claimed by violence.

Here are the names of those we know we lost this year:

Dana Martin.

Jazzaline Ware.

Ashanti Carmon.

Claire Legato.

Muhlaysia Booker.

Michelle "Tamika" Washington.

Paris Cameron.

Chynal Lindsey.

Chanel Scurlock.

Zoe Spears.

Brooklyn Lindsey.

Denali Berries Stuckey.

Tracy Single.

Kiki Fantroy.

Bubba Walker.

Pebbles LaDime "Dime" Doe.

Jordan Cofer.

Bailey Reeves.

Bee Love Slater.

Jamagio Jamar Berryman.

Itali Marlowe.

Brianna "BB" Hill.

Remember their names.
