Anti-Transgender Violence Across the Globe
Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each month we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion.
We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, November 19. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!
Trigger Warning: The article selected includes discussion of anti-trans violence and hate crimes worldwide.

Questions for Discussion:
- This article focused on what we know (and don’t know) about anti-trans violence worldwide. Was there anything that stood out or shocked you while you were reading?
- Many Trans Awareness Week and Trans Day of Remembrance events are going virtual this year. What impact do you think that will have? Are you planning to attend any virtual events?
- In your opinion, what is one thing that allies to people who are trans and non-binary should start doing? What is one thing they should stop doing immediately?
