Further information: 

The Transgender Day of Remembrance is held annually around the globe on 20th November. It is a day when the trans community and our allies pay respects to the 200 plus victims of transphobia who are murdered worldwide each year, as well as those subject to violence and discrimination which can lead to suicides. Being who you truly are should not be a death sentence.

It is also a time to celebrate our vibrant transgender community and TDOR Birmingham will bring together inspirational speakers, performers and musicians from across the City, including civic leaders, to share their experiences and deliver an evening that honours those who are no longer with us. The event itself runs between 6 and 7:30pm and there will be a fully staffed bar, buffet, opportunity to network and music til late. The best way to remember is to live.

Everyone welcome. Admission free.
