November 20 is the Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is meant to honor those who have died from violence against transgender people.

On top of the hostility, those who do not identify themselves within the historical definitions of gender struggle with daily issues from filling out the gender section on medical forms to using a public restroom without ridicule.
