Transgender Day of Remembrance

Nov 20, 2017
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Black Box Theater, Main Street Landing, 60 Lake Street

Please join us to honor and remember those lost, and to strengthen
and nurture our local community. Light refreshments and community time will be available following the memorial.

“The Transgender Day ofRemembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to
anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our
rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase
transgender people – sometimes in the most brutal ways possible – it is vitally important
that those we lose are remembered andthat we continue to fight for justice.”
– Gwendolyn Ann Smith,
Founder, Transgender Day of Remembrance
