We remember today the victims of anti-transgender prejudice and violence as we observe the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). 
TDOR began as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. Hester is featured in this painting by Mary Button alongside an image of Jesus’ crucifixion and a news photo of an early TDOR vigil. The term “transgenders” is most commonly replaced today by “transgender people.”
