Transgender Day of Remembrance

Thursday, November 20 marks the 16th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Local organizations in the D.C. Metropolitan area are hosting events to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. This day allows allies to stand with their transgender siblings to honor the memory of those we’ve lost in the transgender community.

According to The Transgender Day of Remembrance website, “The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers.”
