Transgender Day of Remembrance

TDoR initiated in 1999 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith ti memorialize the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. It has been held annually ever since...on November 20.

At live gatherings, there is generally a reading of those who have died as a result of violence Over the past year.

This year, the list of verified victims contains 106 names, 66 from Brazil, 25 from the United States, three from Mexico, two from France and one each from Australia, England,Italy, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Spain, Thailand, and Turkey.

Each entry includes (when known), the name and age of the victim, the location of the incident, the cause of death, and the date of the incident.

If I wrote about the murder at its time of occurrence, I provided a link to the document. Photos of the
the deceased when they were still alive are often included in those diaries.

The youngest victim was 14. The oldest was 52.
