Trans women of colour are irreplaceable. Two spirit folks are irreplaceable. Trans feminine, non-binary, trans masculine people are irreplaceable.
On November 20th, we recognize the Trans Day of Remembrance. We acknowledge that our pronouns and lives and bodies, our experiences and existences are legitimate. We honour and remember our community members who have died. We celebrate our collective resilience and resistance.
“We must roll up our sleeves and start doing the hard work of learning how to work through conflict, pain and hurt as if our lives depended on it—because they do. We have to learn how to have hard conversations and get skilled at talking about and dealing with shame, guilt, trauma, hurt, and anger. […] Commit to not letting go of each other, even when it’s hard—especially when it’s hard. Commit to finally learn that the ends do not justify the means. How many times do we have to learn that how we do the work is just as important as the work we do? Commit to thinking about after the meeting, after the protest, after the revolution.”
