Transgender Day of Remembrance

Since 1999, Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20 annually) has been an important part of the life of transgender communities around the world.

New in 2013

In 2013, Transfaith is excited to announce the launch of a Transgender Day of Remembrance toolkit to resource faith communities and other Transgender Day of Remembrance organizers.

We are also excited to be part of the new TDOR Unite! coalition, which unites across lines of difference to provide virtual ways for all to connect and mutually support each other around Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Check out some highlights from this year:
