A PSALM IN HONOUR OF TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

TDORNovember 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance (the 15th year of its existence), the day to remember Trans peoples who’ve experienced violence, gone missing, or been murdered for being who they are: Trans.

According to the very reliable source Transgriot, 238 Trans peoples, mainly Black and Latin@, were killed this past year.

We remember Trans peoples who have experienced violence, gone missing, or been murdered via a psalm by Trans Reverend Cindy Bourgeois who is an awesome ally to her Trans sisters of colour.

Cindys New head shotCindy Bourgeois is the first known out and proud trans person to be ordained to ministry by a mainline Christian denomination in Canada.
