Almost 2 years ago I did a thread examining the circumstances of each name on PFLAG's TDOR 2020 list. The lists are getting shorter every year, but I thought I'd circle back and do another.

Quick recap of the old thread: using FBI/CDC stats, "trans" less likely to be murdered than gen pop.

Elios, Maudit, Morgana, Camilla, Cloe, Sasha, Naomi, Chiara. E altre due persone, senza neanche un nome.

Sono le dieci vittime di transfobia dell’ultimo anno in Italia. Alcune storie le conosciamo, altre le abbiamo dimenticate, o vorremmo farlo. Io non voglio dimenticarle.
Elios, 15 anni, era una persona non binaria. Amava leggere, soprattutto la mitologia e i grandi classici. Elios non era accettatə dalla madre e dalla scuola. Si è buttatə dal quarto piano di una palazzina, l’anno scorso, ma la notizia è stata diffusa solo lo scorso 17 ottobre.
Maudit, 29 anni, era una persona agender. Si è toltə la vita il 30 marzo scorso. Era unə poeta e si batteva contro lo stigma dell’HIV, gli stereotipi di genere e per la normalizzazione del ciclo mestruale delle persone trans*. Scriveva: “lasceremo che oggi siate voi a guardarlə”.

Forty-seven trans people have been violently killed so far in 2021. While this number represents an increasing trend, let's talk about what that number doesn't tell us.

#TDOR #tdor2021

* These are violent crimes, meaning someone else took their lives. This number does not reflect those that took their own lives as a result of unmanageable pressures of discrimination, abandonment, homelessness, forced conversion therapy, etc.

* This number only includes those situations where Law Enforcement documents the victim as transgender. It does not include those killed where police and families hid the gender identity of the victim. This is a common occurrence and skews the numbers heavily.

🧵Today is #TransDayOfVisibility.

Over a decade ago, Rachel Crandall-Crocker wanted a reason for transgender people to celebrate and come together. So she created one.

Millions of people now recognize March 31 as a day to celebrate trans people
It was 2009, and at the time, the only annual event that most trans communities had — Transgender Day of Remembrance — was nothing to celebrate.

#TDOR was born in 1998 after Rita Hester, a Black trans women in Boston, was murdered in her own apartment.
Crandall-Crocker sometimes attended the community funeral. She felt it was important. But when she did, it left her depressed for up to a week afterward.
