The murder rate for transgender people keeps rising. Transgender Europe cites a total of 369 reported killings of trans and gender-diverse people between October 2017 and September 2018.
The majority of the transgender murders reported during the past 12 months were in Brazil (167), Mexico (71), the United States (28), and Colombia (21). This is 44 more deaths than were reported in 2017.
That depressing information has been added to this blog’s repeatedly updated and perpetually depressing list of “1000s who died in anti-gay, anti-trans attacks.”
This year’s Trans Day of Remembrance will be Nov. 20, 2018.
