as the keynote for the Tuscon TDOR on the University of Arizona campus.
Media interviews were granted by us in which we delivered the crystal clear message that our lives and humanity matters, and we along with our allies read the names of over 300 trans people around the world who lost their lives to anti-trans violence.
We lit candles for those souls we lost, mourned them, comforted each other, and walked out of those venues more determined than ever to ensure that these people didn't die in vain and that we the living would ensure that trans rights would prevail here and around the world.
Here's just a few snapshots of TDOR 2016 ceremonies and events around the world. I'll add more as I receive them.
