Transgender Day or Remembrance

Transgender Day or Remembrance is Sunday. The Day memorializes our trans brothers and sisters who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

There are events all over the world commemorating the day; a list of worldwide events appears here.

Attend a nearby event to:

  • Raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform.
  • Publicly mourn and honor the lives of transgenders who might otherwise be forgotten.
  • Express your love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred.
  • Remind non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers.
  • Give our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence.


  1. I agree this is a very great cause. Here's a link for the greater Queen City; Cincinnati, Ohio;

    I don't want to sound bitter but .. Too bad it's extremely dependent upon the "thinking" norms of this polite society.

    The lost are in my prayers.

  2. I'll be at the local event, albeit in drab.

    Listen to Stana: if you can attend, please do. There is strength in numbers.

  3. I attended a very moving simple ceremony today remembering 18 trans people killed in the last year, if you can go to an event tomorrow do.
