Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is the national Transgender Day of Remembrance which occurs each year on November 20’th.  We honor all our trans brother and sisters who have been killed due to transphobia.  There is a tremendous amount of hatred and fear out there regarding people that are transgendered.  

According to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, transexuals are the most harassed group out of all the LGBT community.  It is truly sad how scared people are of things they don’t understand.  Unlike gay or lesbians, transgendered individuals are born the wrong gender.  Their minds actually develop similar to the opposite gender.  That is something that is really hard for “mainstream” society to understand.  

We know things can and will get better and are looking forward to it.
