Transgender Day of Remembrance.

20th November is Transgender Day of Remembrance. We use this day to memorialise those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia. It's also a time to look back and reflect on the historical struggles of the transgender community, keeping in mind that those struggles still exist today.

Between January 2008 and September 2017, there were 2609 recorded murders across 68 countries - committed against transgender people on the basis of their gender identity.

Wolverhampton LGBT+ Alliance is dedicated to improving the lives of the transgender community in Wolverhampton. We celebrate diversity in all its forms and understand that people are better when they can be themselves.

Anwen Muston, Councillor and member of the Alliance, has kindly shared her experience in her own words.
