So I was handed this ribbon yesterday because it’s trans* day of remembrance on Thursday 20th November.
It’s a day where trans* people who have been killed in violent incidents are remembered. In the last year, 226 trans* people have been killed around the world – that’s more than two a week.
The ribbon is based on the trans flag. The blue colour represents male, pink for female, and white for everything inbetween, including gender neutral, genderqueer, intersex and agender people.
I went for a relatively simple design, with the colours changed around a bit. I didn’t want to make the reference uber obvious – I’d sooner that it was something of an ‘in reference’. The polishes that I used were
– Sinful Colors Snow Me White
– Nails Inc Elizabeth Street
– 17 Heart Beat
