2017 Trans Day of Remembrance

November 20, 2017 ·

For many years, the trans community’s one event was a memorial service and while we now celebrate numerous aspects of trans lives, November 20th remains the trans community’s oldest community tradition.

What follows is the 2017 Remembrance Booklet produced by the Transgender Foundation of America’s TDOR data collection project:

Violence against trans people remains a defining aspect of trans lives and the Trans Day of Remembrance is our community’s opportunity to bear witness to end-result of the anti-trans hate trans people face, as a community.

Today you are encouraged to seek out others in the trans community and together, honor the memory of those we’ve lost this year as the result of anti-trans bias.

Worldwide data collected by the Transgender Foundation of America’s TDOR data collection project.
