The Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden at 328 Paddock Ave will hold a Transgender Day of Remembrance on Tuesday 11/20/12 at 7pm at the church.
This is a Memorial Service in remembrance of all those who have lost their lives, due to anti-transgender hatred and prejudice.
Every year, around November 20th, the transgender and allied community observes Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is a ceremony to honor and bring voice to transgender women and men that have been murdered based solely on their gender identity and expression. Last year, more than 150 transgender individuals were murdered. It is the largest number ever reported.
Join us in participating in this Transgender Day of Remembrance Ceremony. Using our collective voices to come out and say that murder of anyone is unacceptable, and that all life has value.
