|Transgender Day of Remembrance 2018 #EnoughIsEnough|
The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, is observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.
The City of San Francisco and trans organizations and individuals has come together to commemorate this somber yet important day to remind everyone that trans and GNC folks are target for violence, stigma and discrimination and can fatal results. Commemorating this day serves as one of the foundations to bring equality to the forefront around transgender visibility and its legacy as a community.
