Hollaback! RVA is deeply concerned about the street harassment the LGBTQ community faces. During this time of year we would like to shed light on harassment that the transgender community faces. The month of November is a special month to remember the lives we have lost due to this gender based violence/trans* hate. It is unfortunate that these individuals have lost their life because of their gender identity.
Hollaback! RVA is involved with Richmond’s efforts, Transgender Day of Remembrance, to remember these lives and also would like to take the time to honour these lives via this site and other social media sites. Each Day in November we will be sharing with you a name, a story, and a picture ( if we can find one) of the many lives lost.
We must continue to fight harassment in our cities and work to make the cities we live in safer for members of the LGBTQ community.
