Remembering Our Dead


Every year on or around 20th November trans people worldwide gather for the Transgender Day of Remembrance to remember those we have lost to violence in the past year.

This site gives details of trans people known to have been killed, as collated from reports by Transgender Europe and trans activists worldwide.

Details are also given for those lost to suicide where known.

The site is intended to act as a supporting resource for anyone organising Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) events and is intended to be used alongside the official data collated by the Trans Murder Monitoring Project and published by Transgender Europe (TGEU) in early November of each year.

A big thanks are due to the many trans activists and organisations worldwide who work tirelessly collate data on anti-trans violence and in particular to the members and admins of the Trans Violence News Facebook group, without whose support this site would not be possible.

All material presented is gathered from publicly available sources. Please don't read anything into the raw numbers. What matters is the lives lost, and their stories. Be warned though - some of their stories are horrific.
