Today is Trans Day of Remembrance, or TDOR, when we honor all the transgender and gender nonconforming people whose lives were lost due to acts of anti-transgender violence.

Scroll through the slides to see 6 things to do on TDOR. We've also included organizations to follow and support, as well as links for Transgender and gender nonconforming folks to find mental health care that celebrates you and us. 👉

This caption is written largely by Schuyler @pinkmantaray (thank you for your leadership), with our additions in collaboration. 💗🤍💙

This year is the deadliest year on record. Again. At least 375 transgender & gender nonconforming folks have been killed globally.

Transphobia is violence. We as allies need to help stop these murders and violence caused by transphobia. You might read this and think, “Well, I’m not going to murder a trans person, so this doesn’t include me.” And you’d be wrong. Transphobia is a societal, systemic problem. Which means it’s everyone’s -- especially every cisgender folks’ -- responsibility to stop. Everyone who does not actively fight transphobia contributes to upholding it.

As a community, we will continue to celebrate and uplift the voices, expressions, and needs of Transgender communities today and always.

Swipe for a few things you can do in your everyday life to fight transphobia and stop the epidemic of violence against trans people.

If you’d like to join in this campaign, download the slides at pinkmantaray.com/TDOR.

This Halloween may be extra exciting for children that may feel they "missed out" last year. We wish you a fun, healthy, and safe celebration!

As adults, it's our duty to lead and model. We imagine many here in community already know it's inappropriate to dress up in traditional Native regalia or Indigenous cultural wear as costumes.

But what happens when we encounter others doing so? Are we able to invite them into dialogue about why this behavior is harmful and violent, especially when modeled for future generations?

We created this guide to help, based on the teachings of Santee Siouxx, Alisha Mernick, Lakota People's Law Project and Indigenous Cultures Institute.

Unlearn, inform, advocate, and have a Happy Halloween.

NOT an afterthought! Let's always remember to center the unique and diverse experiences of I and A under the 2SLGBTQIA+ umbrella.

Be mindful: Intersex folks may or may not desire to be included under the umbrella, especially if it it overshadows activism against Intersex ge***al m*tilations (IGM) aka "Intersex medical interventions". (Many Intersex people are cis-, non-queer.)

In Euro/American-centric cultures or within colonial ideology, hyper-sexualization is used as a weapon against QTNB communities. Q***rness is not just about sexual attraction.

This mindset also erases the lived experiences and harms against Asexual communities (caused by pathology and social rejection), including: gray ace, demisexual, semisexual, and more.

In the beginning of Asexual Awareness Week and on Intersex Awareness Day, we invite us as a community to CELEBRATE, learn, and support Intersex and Asexual communities according to how we/they define.

Let's also uplift our/their causes from intersectional, liberatory frameworks. Here are 9 change-makers and organizations to amplify and support.

We are sending care to parents, families, and communities navigating the pain of pregnancy and infant loss - especially marginalized communities who are more likely to experience this heartache.

Although it may feel deeply isolating, your grief is felt relationally and collectively.

We see your unspoken grief - what cannot be put into words, and may only be held in your body or unfold in your dreams. The grieving of an absence that is stirred up in unexpected moments.

We see you, and we are holding your unspoken grief with tenderness. If it is helpful to be heard, visit our website to find a therapist near you that can hold that space with care. ❤️

Dear Trans, Non-Binary, and Q***r family: we honor and celebrate you and us! 🎉

We understanding that our experiences of "inviting in" and "coming out" are complex and layered, woven with joys and grief, euphoria and pain, and all spectrums in between.

Our loving reminders:

This is YOUR story!

Share it in YOUR timing,

with YOUR people

in YOUR way.

Or not! Your agency and safety are priorities.

We are also imagining a decolonial, liberatory, fluid and expansive future where "coming out" is no longer a thing!

We cherish you on #comingoutday and every day. 🏳️‍🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎

Indigenous Peoples' Day is a day of honoring and celebration.

For non-Natives, it is also a reminder to reflect on our ONGOING duty to this Land and their Indigenous communities. Our commitment should be DAILY, for example but not limited to:
• acknowledging our relationship as settlers on this Land and ending exploitation
• (un)learning colonial ideology and violence
• uplifting and supporting #Landback, Indigenous Sovereignty, Black Liberation movements
• returning, repairing, redistributing
• decolonizing spaces and relationships that we occupy (including the mental health field)

Today, we uplift the work of @MelaninMvskoke. Click link in profile to read her essay: Envisioning Black Liberation and Indigenous Sovereignty.

Below are a few highlights from Amber Starks' powerful piece.
Sovereign Indigenous future is:
• rooted in the fundamental belief that Indigenous peoples (globally) have the inherent right to self-governance, self-determination, and political and social autonomy
• our absolute right to be in relation with the land and to steward it as in the days of our ancestors. Where the land is set free from capitalism and commodification
• our epistemologies and understandings of the natural world are honored and respected as legitimate, scientific knowledge

A fully realized Black liberated future is:
• rooted in the fundamental belief that Black people (globally) are also sovereign and have the right to self determination and autonomy
• our bodies and our lives are no longer commodities of white supremacy and racial capitalism, but instead belong to us
• our health outcomes, quality of life, and life expectancies are not determined by our positionality within this racialized hierarchy

Read her whole essay via link in profile.

We also invite you to follow these 9 Indigenous change-makers and organizations. Support and learn with them as a part of our daily commitment towards de/anti-colonialism.

CW: genocide and kidnapping of Indigenous children

Yesterday on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, National Day of Remembrance for Boarding Schools, also known as #OrangeShirtDay, we came together as a community for our monthly Fireside Chat.

As a part of our Land Acknowledgement practice, we open our space with practical ways that we as diasporic settlers and descendants of colonial settlers can: hold one another accountable, follow the lead of Indigenous communities, and do our part to amplify, uplift and advocate. #Landback

We invite us to meet with the intention to learn, heal, change, and decolonize our ways of being, and to dismantle colonial systems. May we as a community consider our roles in the liberation, and restoration of Land, language, and culture for all Indigenous Peoples.

Not just in words or thought, but through ACTION.

Here are some slides that were shared, for those that were unable to be with us or participants that would like to have the resources again.

For non-Indigenous folks, please see last slide for organizations to support and donate to if you have the means.

If you don't have the means at this time, send them to friends and family that do and explain why we have a duty to align with Indigenous Sovereignty through reparations. All settlers have a duty if we call Turtle Island home.

As the Honorable Murray Sinclair (First Nations lawyer that served as chairman of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission and first Indigenous judge appointed in Manitoba) says, "Reconciliation is not an act of forgiving past wrongs. It is a process of dismantling the ongoing colonial relationship that treats Indigenous People as less than human. It is not a matter of benevolence or charity. It is a matter of respect and rights."

Thank you @wetsuweten_checkpoint @nativelandnet @indigenousmotherhood for your work (we wish you rest and restoration), and @starlings_community for your summary. (Follow all of them on Instagram)

Anti-immigrant sentiments have risen significantly within the past 4 years, especially within the so-called "United States". We see this with the villainization of people from Mexico and Guatemala seeking shelter in the "U.S". We see this with the senseless attacks on elderly Asians. We are seeing it now with refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan and Haiti. These stories are headliners; they are in the daily news. How aware are we towards the challenges that these groups face?

We also often neglect to consider the intergenerational challenges within these communities. What are the experiences of the adult children of immigrants? What impact does their parents’ experiences have on their lives and possibly their children's? What are the similarities or differences in cultural values between the generations, and what relational effects might that have?

Join Safi Lynch Wilson and Melody Li, LMFT on 9/30. We will explore these questions in community, and challenge us to examine our own internal biases as clinicians.

We will analyze the paradox of the label “immigrant”, within the context of that label being created by people who do not rightfully own the Land which they have claimed. We will examine the challenges of being oppressed and regarded as second class citizens for some whose ancestors rightfully belong on this Land, where their parents or they themselves have come to be known as "immigrants" on Lands that they belong on.

As diasporic settlers (differentiated from descendants of colonial settlers), we will also examine our positionality in relations to this Land, challenge our internalized entitlement, and fortify our duty to advocate for and align with Indigenous Sovereignty and #LandBack as the priority.
