From an Xtra.ca article:

Morgan M Page sometimes wishes she could reach back and hug her 12-year-old self: a lost and confused drug-addicted trans sex worker on the streets of Hamilton.

Page, 24, now leads trans programming at Toronto's 519 Church St Community Centre, including the annual Trans Day of Remembrance on Nov 18. The event commemorates trans people who have been murdered.

"If you look at the list of names that we read on Trans Day of Remembrance, almost all of them are trans sex workers of colour," Page points out.
