#TDoR – Join a Transgender Day of Remembrance Event Near You

The Transgender Day of Remembrance (#TDoR) was started by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence that year and began an important memorial that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Since then people have been commemorating the Transgender Day of Remembrance this week every year and we hope that you can join us for a vigil in your area to #SaytheNames of trans murder victims and to promote education and acceptance.

Transgender Day of Remembrance founder, Gwendolyn Ann Smith said, “With so many seeking to erase transgender people — sometimes in the most brutal ways possible — it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice.” Please join us to remember those we have lost and fight for justice.
