EVENT: Transgender Day of Remembrance

By November 20, 2012

Follow me on:

Did you know that today is Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), a day to build awareness and honor trans and gender-variant individuals who have lost their lives to violence?

Transgender Day of Remembrance is held in November to honor the death of Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28, 1998 launched the "Remembering Our Dead" web project and a San Francisco vigil the following year.

TDOR is more than a one-day event, as the discrimination and violence against trans and gender-variant individuals is prevalent year round.

HRC has put together a detailed package of resources to help you celebrate TDOR and build trans and gender-variant awareness.
