At least 81 transgender individuals were killed worldwide this year, according to a tally kept by the group behind the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. At least 21 of those murders were committed in the United States,

The FBI only began collecting data on crimes motivated by the victim's gender identity in 2009, Kylar Broadus, executive director of the Trans People of Color Coalition commented, ""These totals represent only the known victims; there may very well be countless other victims of fatal anti-transgender violence whose deaths we will never know about because police, the press or family members have consistently misidentified them based on their assigned sex and name at birth."
