Further information: 

With music, poetry, space for reflection and reading of the names of those who have died in the past year, this is an opportunity to reflect on and remember those transgender and gender-variant people (and those perceived to be so) who have suffered and continue to suffer simply for being who they are.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance takes place on 20th November each year and was founded in 1998 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a transgender graphic designer, columnist, and activist, to memorialise the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. We therefore join with many others around in world in our remembering.

The event will follow the same simple format as in previous years and will once again be held at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone. All are welcome to join us in this act of remembrance.
