It’s the Transgender Day of Remembrance

Plus: Important moments on the trans history timeline

For the past week, the LGBT community has been participating in Transgender Awareness Week (Nov. 12 – 19), capping off with today’s Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), which looks back on the people who have been lost to violence. Here in Philly, the trans community still faces the unsolved murder of Krya Kruz. Stories like hers are why the event was created.

GLAAD has also created a timeline that takes a look back at important events in transgender history:
