On Thurs. Nov. 30, the GSA installed a large art piece in the atrium and held a vigil there during X-block in memory of people in the trans community who were victims of homophobic violence.

Junior Isidora Savic reads a list of names of those memorialized. “It was nine pages of straight-up names. There’s been a wave of anti-transgender violence in the past year, especially with the election,” Savic said. EMMA KAHN/SAGAMORE STAFF
