Two Spirits
Nov. 1, 2011

November 20th is the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance and is an important day for GSAs to bring attention to the violence transgender and gender non-conforming people face every day.

A great way for your GSA to recognize the Transgender Day of Remembrance is to show the film Two Spirits. The film tells the story of Fred Martinez, a Navajo youth who lived his life as a nádleehí – a Navajo term for male-bodied person with a feminine nature. Fred became one of the youngest hate-crime victims in modern history when he was brutally murdered at age sixteen.
