To reflect on Trans Day of Remembrance, there will be a reflective event in Taliesin on 20th November
Trans Day of Remembrance was founded on 20th November 1999 - but what is it?
What is Trans Day of Remembrance?
- It was founded to remember those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to raise awareness of the continued violence directed at the trans community
When is it?
- Trans Day of Remembrance is held annually on the 20th of November
Why is it important?
- To raise awareness of anti-transgender violence, and to honour those within the trans community who have lost their lives to transphobia
- It also gives us the chance to support and celebrate friends and family in the trans and non-gender conforming community, as well as to reduce stigma and offer hope
What can you do to help?
- You can attend the reflective event being held at Taliesin on 20th November, from 4pm - 6pm
- We are looking for contributors to share a piece of music or poetry, as well as showcase important work or research into supporting trans and non-binary lives and identities. If you would like to contribute, please get in touch here
