West Hollywood hosted a virtual Transgender Day of Remembrance ceremony on Saturday, with a reading of the names of those killed as a result of anti-transgender violence.

The ceremony included a speech by Reverend Valerie Spencer and tributes from soul singer LZ Love and the Los Angeles Trans Chorus. It’s available on demand on the West Hollywood YouTube page, www.youtube.com/wehotv.

Transgender Day of Remembrance was launched in 1999 by transgender lawyer Gwendolyn Ann Smith to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998.

This year, at least 46 transgender people in this country and hundreds more around the world have been killed in horrific acts of violence, President Joe Biden said in a Transgender Day of Remembrance statement. Each of those lives was precious. Each of them deserved freedom, justice and joy.

Today on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we mourn those we lost in the deadliest year on record for transgender Americans, as well as the countless other transgender people – women and men. Disproportionately black and brown transgender girls – who face brutal violence, discrimination and harassment.

Transgender people are some of the bravest Americans I know. But no one should have to be brave just to live in safety and dignity, the president’s statement continued. Today we remember. Tomorrow – and every day – we must continue to act.
