Every year on November 20th people around the globe take a moment to remember the unfortunate souls who have passed due to transphobia. Advocate.com handily put together a list of the people who have died this year alone:

I really want my poly family to see this.
To the casual observer, this young couple look just like any other teenagers in love.
But pretty Katie Hill and her boyfriend Arin Andrews share a unique bond - they were both born as the opposite sex.
Katie, 18, spent the first 15 years of her life as Luke, son of a Marine colonel, while Arin, 16, was born a girl called Emerald who excelled at ballet dancing and won beauty contests.
Both struggled with their sexuality all through their childhoods and were teased and bullied but their lives were changed when they both began hormone therapy and later met at a trans support group in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and instantly fell in love.

“Is it okay to be left handed?” - Campaigning, you’re doing it right
This is great.
Why can’t America do awesome campaign videos like this?
Wait, did they add in intersex to that? Awesome!
Beautiful. Is this an Oz ad?
Why do other countries win at advertising? Step up your game, America.
One thing that I am seeing is more and more support for young transgender people. As a sexologist I find this a very positive move.
Here is a link to some good questions about educatiing our educators about transgender and gender variant children.
Thanks to Amy Marsh for passing this on
I made a coming out comic for facebook. Have a happy coming out day, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Great way to come out
i <3 this. a lot.
My favorite part is the request to never use the word “tranny” - I hate that word and the connotation it always carries. I want to be better about asking people not to use that word. I want to be a better advocate of my transgender peers.
Voting While Trans: Protect Your Right
It’s important for everyone of varying gender presentations to make your voice heard during the coming elections. In order to do that, it’s important for transgendered and genderqueer persons to make sure their right to vote isn’t revoked through systemic or overt discrimination.
