PA To Host 19 Events Honoring the Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR)

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Thursday, November 20 will be the 16th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR.)

According to the Pennsylvania Student Equality Coalition:

At least 19 organized vigils will be held in communities throughout the commonwealth for TDoR on November 20th, 2014. This is large increase from just a few events held in Pittsburgh and Southeastern Pennsylvania before 2013.

Here in Pittsburgh, TransPride Pittsburgh gathers on Wednesday, November 19 at Cruze Bar for a memorial service. Over the weekend, Garden of Peace will host the TransVoices events to increase visibility about the trans community.

For a complete list of vigils in Pennsylvania, please visit the PSEC blog.

The TDoR website has a list of 75 individuals who lost their lives since the 2013 event. It is pretty tough to read the list, emotionally. But I think it is important to honor and acknowledge each name, each life.
