[The artwork illustrates many of the Transgender Day or Remembrance vigils taking place tonight across London.] CW: Transphobia, death
In honour of those documented 331 trans and gender diverse people killed this year. Today is a truly poignant and difficult day for all in the community and we need to support and show solidarity to our trans and gender-nonconforming siblings (especially trans women of colour and sex workers- 61% of the deaths have been the sex workers in the community!) across the world.
Memorialising those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia; today is a day that marks the continued violence endured by trans people.
There are 7 slides. 7 slides of names. 331 humans. 331 trans people killed, from October 3 2018 to September 29 2019. You can read the full report (link in story) but this post acknowledges each reported person’s name. The list of names has been compiled by Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide, sources local and national news stories covering these tragic deaths. Rest in peace to all these souls. Will be lighting a candle to so many legends today and always. Say their names, because others won’t but we will! Protect and support trans lives and rights. Respect people’s pronouns and fight against transphobia.
Below are the handles to some incredible UK based LGBT+ charities which I like to support and encourage anyone who in any way is able to; to donate and help out in any capacity you can! Let’s show love and solidarity with our fellow queer and trans siblings.
Please comment or DM me if there are any other resources, gofundme pages or LGBTQ+ organisations you would like to share !
There are lots of vigils happening across the UK but for London pals, in central this evening, legends @wearetransmissions are hosting one at Parliament Square from 7pm-8pm (nearest station: Westminster tube) wear red ❣️🎈‼️✊🏿✊🏽✊🏻 Love and solidarity 💙💖✊🏾✊🏿✊🏻💖💙 @aktcharity
