Transgender Day of Rememberance
The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media often times doesn’t perform. At TDOR we publicly mourn and honor the lives of our transgender people who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of international indifference and hatred. TDOR reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. and gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence.
