International Transgender Day of Remembrance

To mark the 10th International Transgender Day of Remembrance (20th November), the following events will be held this week-end in Manchester, London and Brighton. The day commemorates those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

Will be hosting a Transgender Day of Remembrance on Sunday, November 23rd Assemble for the vigil in Sackville Park (off Canal Street, Manchester) at 3.45pm. The One Minute’s Silence and reading of the names of the deceased will take place at 4pm by the Beacon of Hope. This will take place by candlelight so please bring a candle and holder if you are able to. The vigil will last for approximately one hour, and will be followed by an informal gathering at Taurus bar (1 Canal Street) if people wish. Both Sackville Park and Taurus are fully accessible, although at Taurus we may use a private function room down one flight of stairs. All are welcome; please feel free to bring a reading, flowers or another appropriate tribute.
