March 24, 2021 – International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims.
Misinformation, disinformation, fake news, conspiracy theories and lies about trans children, adolescents and adults are hurting our communities everywhere, fueling anger, fear, hate, ignorance and confusion. However, stopping stigma, discrimination and violence against trans people only requires something very simple: the truth.
We are human beings. Our rights are human rights. There are enough human rights for everyone. Our names matter. Our bodies matter. Our futures matter. Our lives matter. We matter.
