I attended Transgender Day of Remembrance festivities last Wednesday. About 200 people were in attendance. There were speeches, testimonies and stories loss and victory. Iwas particularly touched by a young man's story about how a transgender woman taught him a lot about life. Sadly, she committed suicide. He paid homage to her about the impact she had on his life.

While we have made progress, there's still a long way to go. I encouraged the people to stay the course. Those who are against us are pulling out all the stops to keep us down. Weare making an impact in many arenas. We must be viligent and courageous because this is a matter of life and death.
