November 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR)

Friends,

November 20 of each year is tagged as a Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), a memorial paying tribute to transgender homosexuals violently killed, though not exclusively at present. In the Philippines, this was commemorated by the Society of Transgender Women in the Philippines (STRAP) at their office in Quezon City.

We live in a modern world. We live in a world where nobody should be killed or even hurt on the basis of anything, most especially their chosen lifestyle. We live at a time when everyone must reap the rewards of freedom; living it in its fullness without fear for their life or livelihood. It is our social obligation as citizens to help others live the fullness of freedom, regardless of our own personal beliefs or theirs.

It’s never too late to remember our LGBT siblings. We will never forget, we will always remember.
