Aria Sa'id, left, president and chief strategist of the Transgender District, expressed surprise as she was named Saint Aria the Golden by Sister Vina Sinfurs, right, mistress of saints for the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence during the district's Transgender Day of Remembrance observance at CounterPulse in the Tenderloin. The November 20 event was, at times, somber as attendees paid tribute to the now 47 trans people killed in the U.S. this year, many of them Black trans women. Globally, 375 trans people lost their lives, Sa'id had noted in a news release ahead of TDOR. District officials also called on the government to address the discrimination and violence against the trans community. To learn more about the Transgender District, click here.
