This year alone over a dozen trans people have been killed, and to date many trans murders in San Francisco remain un-resolved.
A recent article by SFGATE.com, Suspect's DNA sat in lab as rapes multiplied, highlights why many trans deaths and or rapes do not get solved.
A local videographer and editor has documented this: Death of Daxi Arredondo

The theme for this year's TG DOR was "Thank You for Your Gifts."
Special Thanks to all who made that event possible.
