November 18, 2016

Sunday marks International Transgender Day of Remembrance – an annual event when the world remembers the lives lost to transphobic and transmisogynist violence and brings attention to the continued violence endured by trans communities. Around the world, trans lives – and particularly the lives of trans women of colour and sex workers – are disproportionately at risk.

Family Service Toronto and our David Kelley LGBTQ & 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.

Toronto’s 519 Church Street Community Centre will hold Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR): Existence is Resistance event at 4 p.m.
