Trans Day of Remembrance 2019: Artist Ethan Parker Honors Those We’ve Lost This Year

Join us to #SayTheirNames and celebrate the lives they lived.

Launched in 1999 by activist Gwendolyn Ann Smith in memory of slain transgender woman Rita Hester, the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) pays tribute to the trans Americans whose lives are lost to hate-motivated violence each year. This Wednesday, November 20, marks the 20th year of TDOR, and the conclusion of Trans Awareness Week 2019.

In honor of the occasion, Logo and NewNowNext teamed up with trans artist and illustrator Ethan Parker to memorialize the transgender Americans who died this year as a result of transphobic violence. Join us to #SayTheirNames, celebrate the vibrant lives they lived, and urge elected officials to address the epidemic of violence that transgender Americans, particularly trans women of color, face every day.

For more information about TDOR, please visit GLAAD. For more information about the perils of hateful rhetoric and anti-transgender violence, visit the National Center for Transgender Equality.
