Trans Day of Remembrance 2020

Friday November 20 is the annual Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR). The first annual TDoR was held in 1999 and created by trans advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith to honour the memory of Rita Hester, a trans woman who was killed in 1998.

It is now an observance to commemorate the trans people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence, with 2020 being a record year for anti-trans hate crimes.
