International Transgender Day of Remembrance

Fri, 25/10/2013 - 1:52pm -- Anonymous (not verified)


The International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), has been celebrated worldwide every year since 1998.

On that day, 20th November, we memorialise the people who have been killed that year, by murder or by suicide as a result of their perceived transgendered identity.

Those people may have been transsexual, intersex, cross dressers or others, or they may have been mistaken for someone else. But their lives were ended because they did not conform to the gender roles that other people expected of them.
