This year, leaders and members of the Trans Doe Task Force were asked by the mods of r/UnresolvedMysteries to coordinate case write-ups to post on the subreddit. Profiles of both Does and missing people from our recently launched LAMMP database will be posted daily leading up to an AMA on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, Friday Nov. 20 at 12 PM Eastern. We held an online vigil via our FB page to remember the 52 unidentified people on the 2020 TDOR list. This page will contain links to all of the related post activity for the week as those links become available.
We will be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on r/UnresolvedMysteries. Ask any questions you have for us. The topic is TDTF and TDOR, but any questions are welcome. We will answer questions throughout the day ahead of our livestream vigil, which will be held on our FB page.
