Sweatpants & Equality | Trans Day of Remembrance 2018

By Jessica Grey

Today, I am honoring those souls so violently taken from this world because of who they truly are. Depending on the agency reporting the statistics, between 345 and 369 transmen, transwomen, and gender nonconforming people have been murdered over the course of the last year. Well over three-hundred people—siblings, parents, children, friends, lovers, partners, chosen family members—were stolen from the lives of the people who loved them, cared for them, enjoyed their company, admired them.

I have edited out the causes of death from the list that follows because we don’t need that information to discuss the violence visited upon these people and their communities, both in terms of the actual attacks and of the social climate that kind of violence seeks to perpetuate. The impact of the transmisic violence that took over three-hundred lives in the last year is broader than each individual attack: it robs trans folks of their right to feel safe expressing their true identity—a right that everyone should have. It—in the minds of those who would commit transmisic violence—functions to legitimize more of the same, especially when so many of these crimes go unsolved and their perpetrators elude justice. And the recurrence of cissexist violence is demoralizing to trans and gender nonconforming people—people who deserve love and safety and affirmation.

So, today I am encouraging cismen and ciswomen to join me in holding in our hearts each of the people listed here and in sending our love and compassion to their friends and their families. I want you to work with me—and so many others—working toward making the world safe for trans and gender nonconforming people: shut down transphobic jokes, respect pronouns and names, affirm everyone’s right to express who they are, and work against those who are actively and hatefully trying to legislate trans communities and identities into nonexistence. I want to you join me in extending love, friendship, and affirmation to the trans folks in our lives.
