Transgender Day Of Remembrance: Paying Tribute To 10 Victims of Violence


Ramazan Çetin, 24
Location: Gaziantep, Turkey
Died: October 6, 2011

After a bad fall Çetin was at a local hospital seeking treatment, when her brother, Fevzi, barged in and shot her three times in front of witnesses. When he turned himself in to authorities later the same day, he calmly stated, “My brother was engaged in travestism. I killed him. I cleaned my honor!”

Hopefully that’s now how the legal system will see it.
