Trans Day Of Remembrance

Trans Triathlete Chris Mosier: “Visibility Is Powerful”

Hearing stories of violence against transgender people can be overwhelming; Transgender Day of Remembrance reminds me to be strong and to move forward with a purpose. Stories and experiences from strong trans voices create opportunities for awareness, education, and understanding of the lives of transgender people.

The visibility of the transgender community on this day is powerful; I try to carry this into the advocacy work I do as I try to change policies, raise awareness, and increase equality… A growing list of allies is our greatest hope in combating transphobia and shortening the list of names to be read next year.”
