|Black transgender artists come together to grieve the deadliest year on record & express hope|
November 20, 2020
Today is Trans Day of Remembrance.
"Even though we are still being murdered at extremely high rates, we are letting our presence be known. We are fighting for our happiness. We must celebrate our resilience."
2020 has been the deadliest year on record for transgender people with at least 37 transgender or gender non-conforming people have been killed in the United States, and most of the victims were Black women. As we mourn their loss on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, NMAC joined forces with Deja “Lady Davenport” Smith, Peppermint, and Mila Jam to highlight the most important reminder of the day.
No matter how hard they try, we survive.
