Remembering Our Dead

Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance. For folks in the GTA, observances will be held at 7 PM at the 519 Centre on Church Street, and in Confederation Park in Peterborough. Sadly, there's another three-digit death toll, and statistics compiled by the Remembering Our Dead site and the main DOR site indicate that the murder rate is rising worldwide, compared to its already too-high level a decade ago when DOR first began. Whether that's an actual increase, or just better reporting, is unclear... but what hasn't changed a bit in that time is that transgendered people (mostly poor trans women), or people taken for trans or gender variant, fall victim to murder at a shocking rate.
