On Thursday, Nov. 18, District and area residents gathered for the Transgender Day of Remembrance at the Metropolitan Community Church of Washington. The annual event, marking a time to remember transgender victims of crime — including several murders that have gone unsolved — brought together more than a hundred community members on Thursday evening.
This year’s keynote speaker was Amanda Simpson, a senior technical advisor in the U.S. Department of Commerce and the first trans-identified woman to receive a presidential appointment. She spoke out against transphobia and its consequences — whether coming from a comedian like David Letterman or from the gay community.
