Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event serves to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, honor the lives of those who have died by anti-transgender violence, and express love and respect for transgender individuals in our community.

This year Transgender Tallahassee, along with the Family Tree,  Maaca, Inc.,  The FSU Pride Student Union, and Gentle Shepherd MCC, will host a remembrance gathering tonight (Thursday, November 20) from 6-9pm at Gentle Shepherd MCC, 4738 Thomasville Rd. The gathering will include speakers, refreshments, and a candlelight vigil to remember those who gave their lives to light our way to a brighter future devoid of hate.
