NCTE releases 2023 Remembrance Reportdfwnewsa | November 21, 2023 | 0 | Dallas News
The National Center for Transgender Equality has released its 2023 Remembrance Report honoring the lives of 109 transgender individuals who have died in the United States since November 2022. At least 53 of those were killed in acts of violence; another 33 died by suicide.
Kris Tassone, policy counsel for the NCTE and head of the remembrance project, said, “NCTE’s Remembrance Report emphasizes the importance of accurate data collection, urging governments to recognize all gender identities. Despite strides in vital record updates, more comprehensive efforts are needed to ensure accurate representation and recognition.
“The 2023 Remembrance Report emphasizes the importance of coming together to mourn and support a cause. Everyone we lost was precious and deserves to be honored for who they truly were, in their entirety,” Tassone said.
Information in the report was compiled from various sources, including national and local news, LGBTQ organizations, social media and community submissions. The report comes in the form of an online memorial with photos, illustrations and, where available, biographical information about each person.
The report also includes names of trans people who have died around the world.
The 2022 Remembrance Report listed 47 transgender people lost to violence. This year’s report indicates a slight increase, according to a statement from NCTE.
Violence against the transgender community is often underreported, and data about it is difficult to capture. Transgender people who are victims of violence are frequently misidentified in death by law enforcement, journalists, and even by unsupportive family members, often by being referred to by their dead name or their assigned sex at birth rather than their true name and gender.
