Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of the transgender and gender expansive people whose lives were lost to transphobia and violence.
Join us for a beautiful service to remember, honor and celebrate those we have lost and those who continue to fight. We will be honoring of those lives lost but this will also be a celebration of life and a way for the community to come together in support of all transgender people.
Enjoy great speakers including our keynote speaker Ebony Ava Harper, special readings, live music and a candle honoring ceremony. This is free event!
Can't attend? Consider donating! Donations to help fund this event and to support the local trans community throughout the year are graciously appreciated.
Trans Americans Lost To Violence In 2022
There is a historic and ongoing epidemic of violence impacting the transgender and gender expansive community. Those we have lost to this violence so far in 2022 are estimated far from the actual numbers. Oftentimes these crimes are not reported, the victims misgendered and deadnamed.
The numbers also do not account for other forms of violence such as bullying, sexual assault, systemic racism and discrimination in housing, access to healthcare and employment.
Although the entire transgender community is affected and at risk to this horrific violence, Black and Latinx women are the most impacted.

The Transgender Flag flag seeks to honor and celebrate the trans, intersex and gender expansive community.
Utilizing traditional, Western boy/girl color symbolism, the light blue represents boys and the pink represents girls. The white is used to represent those who are transitioning, are gender expansive, identify as neutral gender and those who are intersex.
The Transgender Flag was created by American trans woman Monica Helms in 1999 and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2000.
