    11/20/2011 is International Trans Day of Remembrance.

    Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th, 1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester’s murder — like most anti-transgender murder cases — has yet to be solved.

    Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance self-identified as transgender each was a victim of violence based on bias against transgender people.
