Waymon Hudson's Fight OUT Loud organization produced this video. So far this year, an LGBT person has been murdered every 8 days. That's just the ones we know about...

That...made me cry.

I will point out the majority of the people in that have non-typical gender identities. So for people who claim that TG people shouldn't be included in the LGB movement, or just feel that TG people shouldn't exist to begin with (A more common sentiment in the LGB community than you might think. :( ), pay attention to that.

I will also take this chance to point out to those that don't know about The Transgender Day of Remembrance, November 20th every year, where we remember people. For people that find this video surprising, remember that most of the people in it are in a group that has endured this marginalization and violence for years and years.
