Remember to attend Trans Day of Remembrance – Tammye Nash

The transgender community in North Texas has been in the spotlight for the last week or so, thanks to the Fort Worth City Council’s vote last Tuesday, Nov. 10, to amend the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance to include protections for trans people.

I am pretty sure the council didn’t plan it this way, but the vote happened less than two weeks before the 2009 Transgender Day of Remembrance, the day set aside each year to remember and honor our trans brothers and sisters who have fallen victim to anti-trans violence.
