20 November - Transgender Day of Remembrance
Each year on the 20th of November (since 1999, although the first event was in 1998, on the 4th of December), the International Transgender Day of Remembrance is observed. This day is a time to remember all those who have died as a result of transphobia (emotional disgust, fear, anger, or discomfort felt or expressed towards people who do not conform to society's gender expectations), not all of whom have been transgender. It is also a time to call attention to the continued violence experienced by transgender people and the transgender community.
This page gives a partial list of those who have died as a result of transphobia in 2013:
