Transgender Day of Remembrance: Let's Do More Than Just Say Their Names
With at least 26 murders so far, 2016 is officially the deadliest year on record for America’s transgender community.
The majority of those we lost were trans women of color, a group that faces a greater risk of death by hate violence than any other, according to the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs.
On November 20, Transgender Day of Remembrance 2016, Logo will share these names on the air throughout the day. Below, we pay respect to these individuals. We celebrate who they were in life, not just death, and acknowledge the loss felt by loved ones.
