Honor the lives of transgender individuals on Transgender Day of Remembrance from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, in the North Gym, room 118.
The annual event is also an opportunity to raise awareness about transgender existence in our community, provide a safe space for transgender people, identify allies, and to embrace transgender identities while memorializing those whose lives were cut short.
The resource fair and formal program will feature singing, poetry, and an art display. Speakers will address topics of transgender experiences, gender diversity, inclusion, and the importance of raising awareness about violence and transphobia.
Information on supportive crisis services, local resources, and organizations will be provided. The night will end with a reading of the names of transgender individuals who have died by violent crimes or suicide this past year (Nov.2018-Nov. 2019).
