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.

TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE


Every November 20, transgender people and their allies come together for Transgender Day of Remembrance, an observance that honors the memory of the transgender people lost to hate and violence during the past year. In 2012, 53% of anti-LGBT homicide victims were transgender women. The majority were transgender women of color.
Gwendolyn Ann Smith, founder of the Transgender Day of Remembrance, said of the day, "With so many seeking to erase transgender people - sometimes in the most brutal ways possible - it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered and that we continue to fight for justice."
As an ally to the transgender community, I agree, and GLAAD agrees as well.
