Transgender Day of Remembrance November 20th

Join us on Tuesday November 20th at The Metropolitan Community Church of Washington on 474 Ridge St NW, Washington D.C. 20001 for the Transgender Day of Remembrance 2012 from 6pm onwards.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th, 1998 kicked off the "Remembering Our Dead" web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester's murder -- like most anti-transgender murder cases -- has yet to be solved.

Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance self-identified as transgender -- that is, as a transsexual, crossdresser, or otherwise gender-variant -- each was a victim of violence based on bias against transgender people.
