November 20, 2018

November 20 marks Transgender Day of Remembrance- a memorial in which we remember the lives lost to transphobic and transmisogynist violence.  Trans lives-and particularly the lives of trans women of colour and sex workers- are disproportionately at risk due to transphobic and transmisogynist violence.

Today, we honour and remember the people we have lost this year, and send our love to those we lost before.  In solidarity with our clients, staff, community colleagues, family and friends, DKS and Family Service Toronto feel it is important to remember trans lives that have been lost, as well as reflect on the successes, strength and courage of trans communities, and take this day to renew our continued commitment to combat systemic transphobia and transmisogyny.

More information on the history of Transgender Day of Remembrance, and an image gallery of Transgender Day of Remembrance events held around the world can be found here: http://www.wipeouttransphobia.com/information/tdor/
