Have a relaxing and healthy Thanksgiving holiday!

The Transgender Day of Remembrance...

"...was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder in 1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Since then, the event has grown to encompass memorials in dozens of cities across the world."

Many thanks to Gwendolyn Ann Smith who developed and maintains the "Remembrance" site.
