November 20, 2017
November 20 marks Transgender Day of Remembrance – a memorial in which we remember the lives lost to transphobic and transmisogynist violence. Around the world, trans lives – and particularly the lives of trans women of colour and sex workers – are disproportionately at risk due to this type of violence.
Family Service Toronto and our David Kelley David Kelley LGBTTQQ2SIA+ & HIV/AIDS Counselling Services join in solidarity with our trans communities to reflect on the successes, strength and courage of trans people, as well as honour and remember the lives lost this year. We reaffirm our continued commitment to combat systemic transphobia and trans-misogyny.
More information on the day’s history and an image gallery can be found on International Transgender Day website.
