321 trans people murdered worldwide this year

A total of 321 trans and gender diverse people were murdered globally over the past year, with most victims reported as trans women of colour, according to the findings of an annual study.

To coincide with Trans Day of Remembrance on 20 November, Transgender Europe (TGEU) released its tragic annual update of the Trans Murder Monitoring project, which aims to track the violent deaths of trans and gender diverse people worldwide. 

The report found that 321 trans people were murdered between 1 October 2022 and 18 November 2023, slightly lower than the previous year’s report of 327 murders. 

The organisation reported that 94 per cent of the reported victims were trans women or trans-feminine people, and almost half of murdered trans people globally were known to be sex workers.
