Transgender Day of Remembrance 2022

TransFamily of Northwestern Pennsylvania would like to thank everyone who gathered together on November 20, 2022 at Journey to a Trauma-Informed Life or via Facebook Live for this year’s Transgender Day of Remembrance. TDOR is when we gather together to remember our Transgender siblings lost to anti-transgender violence. It is up to all of us to remember them, since their killers, law enforcement and media often seek to erase their existence.

This year the names of 32 transgender individuals were read and reflections from their friends and family were shared. They are just a small part of the 390 worldwide. Sadly, we know the number is much larger, these are just the ones who have been proven and reported.

TransFamily choose to focus on the positive aspects of these lost siblings when remembering these lives taken far too soon.

If you would like to know the more graphic aspects such as how they died, the Human Rights campaign goes into further detail. You can find that report here:

The Human Rights Campaign also tracks suspicious deaths of transgender individuals. Keep in mind that the reports go into detail of how they died. You can find that report here:
