If you don't know, the Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to remember the trans people in our lives who are no longer with us (too often, before their time). This is always a really sobering day for me, to the point where you might have noticed I haven't posted anything for it in a few years. It's not for lack of care, though, just a weakened emotional fortitude over the years. Thank you so much to Larissa, Tresenella, and Mia for putting this together.

Stay safe and stay healthy, friends. Please don't forget you are loved, you are not alone, and it's okay to cry.

I broke down a time or two putting this together. Please, if you or someone you care for is struggling, suffering, or being abused, don't be afraid to seek help. You're not alone.

Thank you for making it.

Thank you for making the video. I'm not sure if "like" is quite the appropriate word for it -- maybe "appreciate"? Or "felt touched by"?

Anyway, it felt to me like just about the most reverent expression of the spirit of TDoR that I have ever seen.

My workplace decided to do a Transgender Awareness Week thing in the break room. Laid out one of the tables in the break room with coloured tablecloths in the arrangement of the trans flag, put up balloons and ribbons, brought out soft drinks and party pies. I saw it being set up so when they called everyone into the break room I didn't go. I appreciate they tried to do a Transgender Awareness Week thing and I'm sure they had no idea it's Transgender Day of Remembrance but I didn't really want any part in it.

Thank you for everything. Today is hard because I know what it’s like being hurt… and this made my day, thank you.

Why on earth does this happen? Who cares how other people live their lives and how they dress and behave? People are just f------ stupid.

Jocelyn, i want to thank you for making this comic and sharing it with us, and especially for your desire and dedication to show many forms of representation not usually seen in media. it's actually this comic that allowed me to come to terms with my own gender fluidity, and actually gave me the strength to come out as gender fluid to my two best friends (they're very supportive of me, though one of them still doesn't fully grasp how it works.) i don't think i would have ever been brave enough to even think about that side of myself without these characters and this comic, so thank you so much. i'm excited and nervous about the end and look forward to seeing what you do next.

By no design of our own, my spouse and I were married on the very first Transgender Day of Remembrance. Each year I fly the Trans Pride flag with black streamers, and my first post of the day is always about the brutal toll bigotry and fear exact from our community. Only later in the day, after everyone who is willing has read the initial entry, do I then post about the happier occasion of our anniversary.

Thank you, Jocelyn, et al, for this beautiful tribute. Would that it weren't necessary. 😢
