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
