I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

12th ANNUAL TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE (TDOR)


“Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it”
-George Santayana

The quote is found on the homepage of the Transgender Organization’s site and all over informational materials pertaining to the 12th Annual International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).
Supporting organizations across the globe are holding candlelight vigils, seminars and workshops dealing with LGBT issues, film screenings, live concerts, dinners and other events to raise awareness and commemorate the transgendered victims who have suffered from hate crime and prejudice.
This day is held in November to honor Rita Hester,  whose murder on November 28th, 1998 was the start of the “Remembering Our Dead”web project – Rita’s murder (like many other murders of transgender people) has yet to be solved.
To see a full listing of organized events in your area, visit www.transgender.org.
