Transgender Day of Remembrance

Stories and Features


The Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th, 1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester’s murder — like most anti-transgender murder cases — has yet to be solved.

The Webcomics Project began in October 2004 as an event for the 6th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Originally just an idea for a cross over comic between Venus Envy and Closetspace, it quickly expanded to nine comics in its first year, and to fourteen in 2005.

I've participated in this project since 2006 and hope to continue to do so while this web comic page exists.
