November 20th is Transgender Day of Remembrance! Metropolitan Community Churches’ Transgender Ministries is proud to announce MCC’s newest online resource for Transgender Day of Remembrance. We will be updating resources as we count down to the 11th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
The Queer world is still under attack in many reaches of this world. Though advances are made every day for the inclusion and acceptance of homosexual people, yet our gender-variant and transgender siblings continue to suffer the pain of abuse and murder…even in our most “progressive” communities.
Every year, those of us who remain conscious of the loss of life and liberty among our siblings take a day to remember with intention. We mourn the loss of beautiful lives taken from our gender-variant and transgender siblings. These are our siblings who have been abused, beaten, and murdered.
Yet, along with remembrance and mourning we each have the opportunity to act for prevention. Help us this year and every year to follow to bring awareness and compassion to the minds and hearts of our societies. Only through education, activism and presence may we prevent further deaths…deaths of spirit and of body.
