Further information: 

This is the first time that Trans Day of Remembrance has been recognised by the city. It is an annual event that started in 1998 in America and takes place every year to remember those who lost their lives due to anti-transgender violence. We will also remember who died due to suicide as a direct result of being a victim of transphobia. A survey conducted by Pace with Brunel University last year found that 48% of trans people under 26 said they had attempted suicide, and 30% said they had done so in the past year, while 59% said they had at least considered doing so. By comparison about 6% of all 16 to 24 year olds say they have attempted suicide, according to the Adult Psychiatry Morbidity Survey.
The Lord Mayor will also be saying a few words in regards to Coventry’s trans community.
