Brighton and Hove 2015

Date: 
Sunday 22 November 2015, 2:00pm
Town: 
Brighton and Hove
Description: 
Trans Day of Remembrance Memorial Service
Venue: 
Dorset Gardens Methodist Church
Address: 
Dorset Gardens, Brighton
Postcode: 
BN2 1RL
Organised by: 

Trans Alliance Brighton

Further information: 

The memorial is for trans people worldwide who have been murdered or have suffered violence due simply to hatred towards their gender identity and gender expression. Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance self-identified as trans each was a victim of violence based on bias against transgender people.

It is poignant and relevant to the local trans community as only a few years ago in 2009, Andrea Waddell was murdered in her home in Brighton. Andrea was a talented young woman who was well liked, sociable and loved life.

The vigil will include speakers from the community and singing by the Rainbow Chorus.

Attendees will be asked to 'build' the wall of remembrance by placing the names of the dead on the wall. (The Remembrance Wall 2014 is illustrated.) The vigil will also include a minute's applause to acknowledge those who have died. Refreshments will be available immediately afterwards, at the venue, followed by a relaxed social at the nearby Marlborough pub.
