Upcoming: Transgender Day of Remembrance Sunday
“This year, at least 7 Americans lost their lives because of someone’s hatred for their gender identity. That same hate contributed to the tragic rise in LGBT youth suicides.” (-Allyson Robinson, HRC Deputy Director of Diversity)
The Human Rights Campaign calls on all of Los Angeles to “come together as a community for a vigil in observance of Transgender Day of Remembrance. Throughout the world, people gather every year to pay respect to those needlessly killed by hate crimes against the transgender community, and to call attention to the threat of violence faced by gender-variant people.” If you yourself are not LGB or T, there is information at HRC on coming out as a straight supporter.
If you are unable to attend the event, you can also show your support by writing to your lawmakers and becoming a member of HRC.
