Preparing for Dia de los Muertos and remembering all the loss of life this year in the community and out. The alarming number of TWOC that have been murdered this year was at the front of my mind. I started making them memorial candles.
They are not forgotten and never will be.
89% of LGBTQ murders in 2013 were of Trans women of color.
I pray that when you are signing petitions and marching for Trayvon, Mike Brown, gay marriage, and abortion rights to remember that statistic. These women and SO SO many others….. are gone. Due to hatred and bigotry. Stand up for our sisters. ALL women . ALL women of color.
