The Transgender Day of Rememberance is a day the transgender community and allies come together to remember those transgender individuals who lost their lives just because of who they are. The time we honor those lives lost is on or around November 20th of every year.
Since the above video was composed....Congress passed in 2009 the Matthew Shepard/James Byrd Jr. Hate Crime Prevention Act which includes protection for transgender individuals. For more information on the International Transgender Day of Remembrance enter the following URL: tdor.info
