In the midst of all the glitter and glam, I take a moment out once a year to honor those trans people who we lost to acts of hate and fear on the Transgender Day of Remembrance. This is the day where we take stock of our dead and we do it on the 20th of November every year. The victims of this violence are mostly inflicted by others, sometimes by the victim and the group hit hardest every year are women of color.

Society often tells us that trans people don't matter, that we're a punch line to a joke, and less than human. It's crushing. So if you know a trans persons, man or woman, take a moment out of your day and let them know you care. Do it today while we grieve, but also do it every day.

Thank you.
