Today is the international Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day to memorialise those who have been killed by transphobia. IS Network comrade Maxi B has been posting some amazing links on her Facebook in commemoration of this day.

This month marks the 15th anniversary of the murder of Rita Hester, a young transgender woman of colour who was murdered in her apartment in Allston, Mass, USA,

The IS Network condemns all hate crimes against transgendered people and vows to continue its work towards the promotion of full equality of all transgendered people, and to fight transphobia anywhere it can be found, including in our own minds, and to ensure that our own organisation is affirmatively welcoming to trans people in its own groupings, and in its wider work within social movements.
