“Over the last decade, more than one person per month has died due to transgender-based hate or prejudice, regardless of any other factors in their lives. This trend shows no sign of abating.” 

Here are some of the names collected for 2012.

Here is the prayer, begun by Tristissima, and added to by myself, for all of those fallen to hatred, fear, and misunderstanding. I post it yearly. May we heal our culture. May we change.

What is remembered, lives.
