Trans Day of Remembrance: 271 Name’s

CN: Transphobia, Death, Rape, Murder, Suicide, Hate Crime’s

Today is international Trans Day of Remembrance. It is the day we honour the trans people who have lost their lives to violent attacks, transphobic bullying, and other hate crimes that were committed due to transphobia, because people couldn’t cope with someone expressing their gender and being themselves.

This would be done on Tuesday but I feel like putting it up today is much more important.

I am on the organising committee this year for Brighton’s TDoR service, being held this Sunday 22nd at Dorset Gardens Methodist Church. As part of this we have had to look into every faucet of the day, including receiving the list of names.

TDoR was one of the very first things I went to after first coming out and it was hard. Really hard. I had seen statistics online about Trans people, but putting names to the faces of countless cruel murders and transphobia-led suicide’s was almost too much. I found myself leaving the event scared, I didn’t live in Brighton at the time and I had no idea what could happen when I started coming out, I knew but I didn’t know. TDoR brought it home for me.

I know I am in a position of privilege. I live (even more so now) in a relatively safe area for trans people, I ‘pass’ pretty much 100% of the time now, I am granted male privilege due to this, I am not a trans woman, my family haven’t thrown me out, and I am not a person of colour. This is just some of the privileges I have over those of countless trans people murdered this year alone.

That didn’t stop me feeling scared then and sometimes even now in places I am outwardly trans (such as if I dress more femme one day). I have to be careful with every little thing I say at work else I could lose my clients and be forced to leave my job. I don’t have a Gender Recognition Certificate so I can’t change my gender legally on my birth certificate which means I have to out myself at every job to at least one person and trust that they don’t tell anyone else.

But I am still here.

That’s more than can be said for the 271 names reported this year, not including the name of Vicky Thompson, 21, who was found dead last Friday after being put in a men’s prison, despite having been living as female since her mid teens and having gone through GRS and years of hormone treatments.

I took a look down the list when I received it and read the names, disgusted by it. The largest concentration of names from any one place (118) comes from perhaps the most dangerous place to be trans in the world, Brazil. A lot of these names belong to trans women, often of colour, with a large selection being sex workers. This is just those who were reported as being trans, we know that a lot of people are reported in their gender assigned at birth which would make the number sadly higher.

The list we received had the descriptions next to a lot of names and I found myself feeling physically sick at some of them. So many were killed by partners or family members. Some had been killed by hired assassins, a lot of them were left dismembered or otherwise disfigured. It is just horrific. These people were human beings, killed by other humans. They were murdered for nothing more than their gender. They were murdered because they finally had the confidence to go out and present the way they knew they truly were inside. They were killed for being themselves.

Today is important to remember these people. They did nothing wrong. By standing by and doing nothing more people continue to die, by having TDoR we give space to think about those who have died and reflect on what needs to be done.

There isn’t much else I can say on the topic now, other than please be decent human beings. Treat everyone like you would like to be treated. Trans people aren’t special, we aren’t something to ogle at, or worse. We are humans. We eat the same and s**t the same. Don’t demonize us for being ourselves, please. We just want to go pee, we just want to earn a wage, and we just want to live. Please don’t take that away from us.

I want to close on the list of names reported this year. It is by no means exhaustive, just those that have been found and reported. I have left the remarks in the list so please be aware this may be difficult to read.
