Every year on November the 20th, we remember and honour the lives of trans and gender-diverse people reported murdered in the past 12 months.

In the past 12 months, 331 trans and gender-diverse people were reported killed globally.

Of the reported killings worldwide, sex workers make up the majority of victims.

 

A total of 3314 trans and gender-diverse people were reported killed in 74 countries between January 2008 and September 2019.

Migrants make up a high number of the reported murders in Europe. And, of the reported killings of trans and gender-diverse people whose profession was known, worldwide, 61 per cent were sex workers.
