hey guys..i guess i volunteered to make little cards for Transgender day of Rememberance.. kinda of like the ones for Day of Silence last year..so heres what i came up with....feel free to change any of it
Transgender Day of Remembrance
What is it?
Transgender Day of Remembrance is held in November in honor of Rita Hester, a trans-woman who was murdered in her apartment on November 28, 1998.
For those who don’t know,the term “transgendered” refers to someone who was born a certain gender at birth, but feel that it is a false or incomplete description of themselves, almost like they are in the wrong body.
Today is a time for remembrance, and also to create awareness about hate crimes directed at transgender people or those targeted because of their gender identity or expression. It is also a day to remember those lives who have been taken and also to take steps towards stopping gender-based violence and harassment.
What can you do?
You can become an Ally, and stand up for those that have been a victim of a hate crime. An Ally is someone who works to create awareness and respect towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered community. Becoming an Ally says that you are working to end anti-LGBT bullying, harassment, and name-calling. It DOES NOT matter what your sexual preference is, or if you identify yourself as transgendered, just show your support.
“Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it”
