Newmark J-School Audio Journalism Trans Day of Remembrance — an Intergenerational Interview

Friday November 20th was Trans Day of Remembrance, a moment to honor the memory of transgender people who lost their lives due to anti-trans prejudice. At least 34 transgender and gender non-conforming people were killed in the US this year for just being who they are. Worldwide, that number is 350. But Trans Day of Remembrance is also about looking at the big picture and celebrating the community. Valen Iricibar brought together two generations — Kai Farr from the GenderCool project and Tanya Walker from Equality New York — to talk about what Trans Day of Remembrance means to them.
