GATE Statement on TDoR 2017
20th November 2017 is Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR). In the past 12 months, there were 325 reported murders of trans and gender-diverse people globally. However, trans and gender-diverse people are killed not only by active violence, but also by passive violence endemic in social, economic, political, medical and legal structures. This year, GATE calls on the global trans communities and our allies to remember that violence toward trans people is intersectional. Remember that we cannot stop fighting until trans people are respected and protected by society and by our governments. Remember that the fight still continues.
