» More information

The Transgender Day of Remembrance is recognized annually each November 20. It is a day to memorialize fallen members of the trans* community who have been killed as a result of transphobia and hate.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance brings much needed awareness to the trials and horrors faced by the trans* community around the world. It needs to be everyone's goal to keep the media attention and awareness that is focused on our community during TDoR going ALL YEAR LONG.

On November 20th @ 6:30pm, the Pictou County Centre for Sexual Health will recognize the Transgender Day of Remembrance by holding a candle light vigil at the centre. There will be cookies and hot chocolate for refreshments afterwards.
