A single candle lit in a background of all black. Above the candle reads "13th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance." To the left of the candle is: November 20, 2011, and to the right a quote by George Santayana "Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it."

The numbers are in for Transgender Day of Remembrance for 2011. Sadly, there was another increase this year. 221 trans people were killed in hate crimes, or suspected hate crimes, the world over. This is an increase of 24% over the reported number for 2010 (179).

Since Transgender Europe and the Trans Murder Monitor Project began in January of 2008, 775 trans people have been killed. That is more than one murder for every two days, and most countries in the world still don’t report deaths of transpeople, so the real number is likely quite a bit higher than that.

A list of names of those confirmed to have been killed between November 20, 2010 and November 14, 2011 who were transgender or gender non-conforming is included below
