Day of Visibility – 31st March #TDOV
International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event dedicated to celebrating the lives of transgender people and raising awareness of the discrimination faced worldwide.
Day of Remembrance – 20th November #TDOR
TDOR – List of those who have died through hate. They may have identified as transgender, transsexual, cross-dresser / transvestite or any other gender-variant.
It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honours the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorialising those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence.
TDOR in Southampton.
