We call on mainstream and LGBT media to give voice to transgender people and continue to share stories about the lives of transgender people who inspire understanding & acceptance.

On this day when our community remembers those stories and victims of anti-transgender violence, we are reminded about the power of insults slurs like "tra**y." We should not use words that cause pain to others; especially words that transgender people too often hear before they are attacked in anti-transgender hate crimes.

Instead, we urge the LGBT community to speak out for transgender people – about their lives and who they are. Transgender people continue to remain largely invisible in our culture and as a result suffer job losses, discrimination and violence. Together, we must stand united as an LGBT community and allies marching towards an America where people are accepted for who they are.
