This year we especially mourn the lost of Monica Roberts. A icon and a long time friend and collaborator with Trans(forming). We sat on many panels, planned conferences together, discussed ideas on how to make things better for all. Monica used her platform trans griot to announce the correct names
and gender identity of those we lost to violence.
We will miss you my friend!!
The list for 2020 is as follows. We ask that you #saytheirnames
and have a moment of silence for those unknown :

As the country is protesting for #Black Lives Matter the voice of Black trans people aren't acknowledged and fought for the same. Allies join the call for stand in unity with BlackTransmen On May 27 a transman was murder by a police officer in Tallahassee Florida. The national protest and recognition of his Life and Name have been excluded because of his gender identity. Even in his death the world is still misgendering him to well known for the trans community.
