Transgender Day of Remembrance

Celebrated every year on November 20.

Transgender Day of Remembrance was created by Gwendolyn Ann Smith in 1999 to memorialize the murder of transgender woman Rita Hester in Massachusetts.

This day we memorize the people that have been murdered and bullied because of trans-phobia.
And to celebrate the acceptance of gender diversity.
And most of all to accept that it’s none of our business what gender other people identify as.
In essence: don’t be a bully.

“I believe gender is a spectrum,
and I fall somewhere between Channing Tatum and Winnie the Pooh.”

–Stephen Colbert
