Two More Communities Mourn Trans Deaths By Suicide; Both Reported in 24-Hour Period
On September 26, I made a memorial sign containing the names and photos of the 16 trans people reported to have died by suicide so far in 2015; and I took the sign with me to the the Second Annual Journey to Hope Walk for Suicide Awareness and Prevention in my hometown of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Della Fergusen, organizer of the event and founder of the organization, saw the sign and as she looked at their pictures she began to cry; then invited me to join her on stage during the opening ceremonies to read all of their names aloud to the gathered crowd of nearly 200 people.

Yes, the summer of 2015 may henceforth be known as the Summer of Trans, culminating perfectly (as if on cue) with Sunday's Emmy Awards and the triumph of Transparent -- an Amazon series about a Los Angeles family's hilarious and tumultuous experience with the gender transition of its p(m)atriarch.
