Transgender Day of Remembrance

http://tdorforthepeople.wordpress.com/

Transgender Day of Remembrance is observed every November 20th to bring attention to transphobia and memorialize all who have been killed as a result of transphobic acts of violence.  Many cities are hosting vigils to honour those who are no longer with us and denounce violence against trans people.

Fredericton Vigil

Moncton Vigil

If you are unable to attend a vigil, you can still participate by reading about the history of oppression faced by trans people and add your voice and heart in solidarity with those fighting to uplift and support every person who lives with transphobia still.
