Transgender artists in America have reimagined Trans Day of Remembrance, which is observed on November 20 each year to memorialise those killed as a result of anti-trans violence. 

Through their project, Trans Day of Resilience, they hope to support trans women of colour in their lives, not just in their deaths.

Artist Micah Bazant paired eight trans and gender non-conforming artists with eight trans advocacy organisations to design posters in memory of anti-trans violence, to tell stories of "trans power, vision, and leadership".

As explained on the website, the art project "goes beyond remembrance, and uplifts the resilience and power of trans and gender non-conforming communities of colour".

Bazant told BuzzFeed he was excited to see that "so many movements are supporting trans and gender-nonconforming people of colour".
