NB the DATE of this event is now 24th November
MoHoLo & Rainbow Jews join together to create an intimate night of reflection and hope. People of all faiths and none are welcome.
A special Friday night for transgender & gender-queer people, allies, friends & family to gather in remembrance of victims of transphobic violence and prejudice and in celebration of ourselves.
This is normally marked around the world on 20th November, but we will be hosting our event on Friday 22nd November.
Tonight, we'll hear testimonies of struggle and stories of people from the past that we wish to remember.
We will also make a space to share personal triumphs and speak of those who inspire us to keep working for a better future.
The evening will include some accessible Jewish ritual, song and meditation. Non-Jewish participants are welcome.
A simple vegetarian dinner will be served.

A NOTE ABOUT THIS EVENT
A curious heart is a wonderful thing, but this is an important event for a marginalised community, friends and supporters. Those of you who have no direct connection with the trans and gender queer community are completely welcome to join us, but please make sure you are here to remember and honour with us. If you just want to ask some questions about what it all means, feel free to email us
