The Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to remember those who were killed due to hatred or prejudice of transgender people.

The day aims to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, publicly mourn and honor the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten, express love and respect for our people and remind non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers.

It also allows allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, remembering those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence

Many Genders One Voice, the Healthy Communities trans and gender diverse group will be holding an event to celebrate the lives of those who are no longer with us. It will be held on November 24, 6pm at Healthy Communities Brisbane.

INFO: To find out more, call (07) 3017 1733.
