Transgender Day of Remembrance


Josie Mustafa, 25, left in front, and Abby McMillan, 24, embrace during a candlelight vigil at the Transgender Day of Remembrance at the Ravenna United Methodist Church Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013. Attendees took turns reading the names of names, ages and circumstances of how 173 individuals were murdered around the world because of transgender hate or prejudice since Nov. 2012. Mustafa, who identifies as transgender, said she left Kuwait after an assault a little more than a year ago. "I honestly thought I was going to die that night," she said. "I realized I had no human rights." The Emerald City Club and Social Outreach Seattle sponsored the event designed to raise awareness of transgender hate crimes and honor murdered individuals from around the world.
