The Transgender day of rememberance falls on the 20th of November each year and was founded in 1998 to memorialize the people who have been killed due to Transphobia. It has since grown into an international event and in Sweden specifically, the scope has broadened to discrimination, unjust laws and other human rights violations that happen to those of us who don’t follow the norms set around gender and sex. Today there will be lectures, workshops and activities held in Stockholm – more information can be found here: http://www.rfsl.se/?p=4466
Our thoughts and hearts go out to those of you suffering because of transphobia. We set our hopes to putting an end to all of this, and offer our deepest gratitude and highest praise to all of you amazing people who are already turning the tide.
