I went into heavy fact-checking mode in my piece for Assigned today, writing about what we do and do not know about the numbers of trans people who die violently.

The article I called out was conservative bullshit published by the National Review, but they're not the only ones who I've seen treat the HRC list as if it represented every trans person to have died violently. #trans #TDOR #news #journalism #factcheck

This "Trans Day of Remembrance," lots of folks reached out to let me know that I am visible and loved. Yet not a single one of them offered to buy me a squarerigger ship, a schooner, or even a modest sloop. Where are all the REAL allies at? 🧐🏳️‍⚧️🏴‍☠️

Mystical notions of saintly divinity actually allowed the performativity and fluidity of gender to become an inevitable feature of the subject’s self in this era of humankind. Spencer-Hall expresses that by creating this collection the editors ultimately seek to restore trans and genderqueer histories, dismantle white-supremacist cis-heteropatriarchy, and spread general trans and genderqueer joy.

Excusez-moi mais :

2/ le SEUL PÉTHÈNE DE JOUR où on peut se recueillir faut quand même qu'on se prenne la gifle de l'injonction à faire la fête pour lutter parce qu'on est la "communauté" LGBT n'est-ce pas 🙃​ Vous pensez sincèrement que les 351688625698 de personnes qui ne viennent déjà pas à vos évènements parisiens inaccessibles et surchargés sensoriellement y sont là ?

In 2023, the #NationalCenterForTransgendeEquality (#NCTE) revamped its approach in the #TransgenderDayOfRemembrance (#TDOR) report.

This year's edition expands its scope to include #transgender people who #died from #suicide or #healthissues like #LungCancer, alongside those lost to being #murdered, providing a more comprehensive view of the #challenges faced by the #trans #community.

No one is #safe until #trans #folks are #safe.

We need to #takecare of those who can’t take #refuge in the bosom of #patriarchy, and that starts with #trans people.

I forgot to mention for #tdor that Ryucheru also left us this year. Not just trans but a celebrity. Maybe those in the west aren't as familiar with her but she was pretty famous and had just started presenting publicly as a woman.

Manifestation importante à #Padova hier pour le #TDoR, mais aussi suite à un #féminicide récent qui a eu un fort retentissement. « Détruis tout », mot d’ordre extrait d’une poésie de Cristina Torres Cáceres a été repris par la sœur de la défunte dans une tribune publiée dans le Corriere della Sera : «  il n’y a pas de monstre, (…) le meurtrier n’est pas malade, c’est le fils sain du patriarcat. (…) Pour Giulia ne faites pas une minute de silence, pour Giulia, brûlez tout.  »

Auch nach dem #TDoR - Gewalt, Mobbing und Diskriminierung von trans* Menschen ist bedauerlicher Alltag. Anstatt Blind mitzumachen weil es andere ja auch tun, ist es ein Leichtes Betroffene anzuhören und mit ihnen darüber zu reden! Für eine Welt ohne Hass für Alle 🫶🏻

With #TDOR gone, and the officially known list of vicitms of hate crimes is out there, names of some vicitims are missing:

Shay Patten Walker was an
#nonbinary activist who worked as a gender consultant on the #netflix series #SexEducation. The character of Cal was directly influenced by them.

Shay took their own life. And that's the reason official list don't carry those names. They aren't recognized as a result of the trans hate they received, even though it clearly is

A few years ago a friend made a meme about "Who would post transphobia on Pride month?" With Rowling waking up.
Turns out Musk is saying "hold my beer" by suing Media Matters about the article saying that extremist content is shown next to ads, protecting extremists on the #TDoR

I'm out at work (being part of the community actually landed me the job since I now work for a program that helps queer people get jobs; I'm also out to our clients) and was asked if I wanted to write something for #TDoR. I said absolutely.

I'm not going to recount what I said, it was short and benign because I didn't want to re-traumarize anyone who was obligated to be there, but in the course of writing my little speech I looked up the names of the Canadians we've lost this year.

@Kristynwongtam: Thank you @TorontoPflag and @CheriDiNovo for joining and supporting the Trans Day of Remembrance Flag Raising at Queen's Park. Your message of parents protecting Trans kids with love and support is more important than every #ONpoli #TDOR

A toast.

Here’s to trans and enby people, past, present, and future. To what has come before, to now, and to what is to come.

To the sisters and brothers in waiting, trying to see through the egg shell, and for the nest we provide for them when they hatch.

To those long gone, to those taken from us too soon… especially to those vanished and forgotten… we see your high-heeled footsteps left in the earth, and we follow on your path.

And to the now, to those gathered here, in this place and this epoch.

Here’s to all of us.

the altar, now with moar offerings. I also offer for all of you here, the first page of the Spellbook. I have never been so happy with detect text from picture! Yes, the entire text is in the caption.

#TDoR #Trans #TransgenderDayOfRemembrance #Altar

An altar for the Transgender Day of Remembrance. It holds a vase with some red and yellow flowers, candy coins, a quartz crystal, a burning beeswax Yahrzeit candle, a ceramic figurine with female breasts and male genitalia, a water cup, and a sand dollar.

In front of the altar in the hearth is a small singing bowl with a wooden striker, three tarot cards, the Antifascist Spellbook, and an antique pipe rest functioning as an incense burner. There myrrh on a lit charcoal in the incense burner.

The tarot cards are from the Tarot of the Silicon Dawn.  I asked the transcestors if they had a message, and this is what I pulled. The cards are the 2 of Pentacles, the King of Swords, and 99 of Swords.

Ask yourself if what really makes you angry about that trans woman you dislike is that she doesn't show you or others like you the deference you think you're entitled to from her, doesn't act grateful enough to you for your "tolerance", doesn't know her place. #tdor #tdor2023 #transdayofremembrance #transdayofremembrance2023

A screenshot of a Twitter thread posted by Carta Monir @CartaMonir on 20 November 2023 that reads "This Trans Day of Remembrance, please examine your own impulse to annihilate trans women who have made you angry. Trans women live on a precipice and it doesn't take much for people we thought were friends to be calling for our destruction. I am asking you to think hard about the ways that you, personally, have contributed to pile-ons and harassment campaigns against trans women you personally dislike. Especially when those trans women aren't white or skinny or 'passing'."

Tell your friends you care about them. You don’t know when you won’t be able to any more 😢

Extra remembering the times I’ve nearly joined them today. It’s hard. 😭.

the “altar” is a short metal shelf, one of the best $2 I ever spent at the thrift store. It’s most often used for altar actions where I have an uncontained pillar candle, which I let it burn on this edged shelf, and it contains all the wax and scrapes clean to do it all over again next candle ritual.

I have added a vase of flowers, in a mason jar with a special vase topper. I added water in a green iron cup with a matching leaf-shaped saucer.

A black metal shelf just a few inches tall is an altar on a fireplace hearth. On the shelf is a mason jar vase with some flowers, a burning Yahrzeit candle, and an iron tea cup with saucer that is holding water. Standing on the hearth in front of the candle, resting against the shelf, is a small book titled BURN IT ALL DOWN: AN ANTIFASCIST SPELLBOOK by Yerbamala Collective.

Seen on a telephone pole by the co-op. Signs like this are part of what made me feel at home in this neighborhood. #tdor

A telephone pole is decorated with many colorful flowers, surrounding two hand-lettered signs reading "Kindness" and "Protect trans kids!" with little hearts indicating love and support. The colors are reminiscent of the trans pride flag, blue and pink.

I never know what to say for #transgenderdayofremembrance

I hate that we have to have a specific day because so many people hate us so much for such bullshit reasons.

I hate how utterly apathetic cis people are to the physical, systemic, and political violence we face every day.

I hate how much everyone i know is hurting today.

I hate being afraid.

I hate having to do the terrible algebra of survival every time I go to open my mouth in public.

But I love being me.

I love who I am and who I'm still becoming.

And I hate that so many of my siblings will never get the chance to feel that love and joy.

hey cis people

this Trans Day Of Remembrance

let's take a moment to remember those of us who this cruel world so unfairly took

but also...

let's endeavor to create a better, safer, kinder world for trans people (and everyone else!)

remembrance means nothing without a commitment to stopping the cycle that led us here to begin with

today shouldn't be one huge bummer

it should be a day where the fire in your heart to fight for change burns stronger
