The annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) memorializes individuals who have died throughout the world in the previous year because of anti-transgender hatred. Each November, the worldwide transgender community turns its attention to family, friends and loved ones lost to violence and prejudice. A tradition inspired by the Allston, MA vigil for Rita Hester, a trans woman murdered in 1998, this day has become the worldwide rallying point for a community long under siege.
The largest observation in the area will be held at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul on Tremont St. in Boston on November 17th. Several members of the TCNE and First Event teams will be there. We hope you'll join us.
