Transgender Day of Remembrance

We see you.

We hear you.

We remember you.

Each year we look at some of the beautiful trans persons whom are in our network, who have died. Statistically, with the amount of people who work with us, there will always be some deaths but the younger age and the cause of death of trans people is far greater than in the overall population. There are many factors which contribute to this, violence and fear, poor access to healthcare or mental health resources, mental illness, drug use and sometimes disenfranchised from society. We have and we will continue to do what we can, where we can to highlight these issues or ensure trans persons have access and the rights to what they need.

There are trans models we know of that have worked with us who passed during the last 12 months – and our thoughts are with their families. You can find out more at Fallen Angels
