K-12 schools and colleges must take the lead in recognizing and educating about gender diversity. They must implement nondiscrimination policies inclusive of gender identity and expression to protect transgender youth.
On Nov. 20 we grieve the deaths and memorialize and celebrate the lives of persons who have died at the hands of those whose hatred and prejudice toward transgender people has led to acts of unspeakable violence.
We dishonor the memories of all those trans people before us who have lost their lives if we don't find our own ways to fight back. If each of us doesn't find our own way to fight this war against us, we surely will lose.
