Every year on November 20th, International Transgender Day of Remembrance commemorates those who died after falling victims to transphobia and hatred by members of our community who cannot accept gender non-conforming people. It is also a day on which the international community has the opportunity to highlight the problems faced by the transgender community on a daily basis.
