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.
