Attend an Event to Observe Transgender Day of Remembrance 2010

By GLAAD |
November 8, 2010

The Transgender Day of Remembrance, which honors the memory of those murdered because of anti-transgender bias, is recognized annually on November 20. GLAAD encourages journalists and community members to mark the occasion with stories about the pervasive problem of hate crimes against transgender people, as well as the diversity and resilience of the community in the face of harassment and violence.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance is observed in late November in recognition of the 1998 murder of Rita Hester. Rita was a highly visible member of the transgender community in her native Boston, where she worked locally on education around transgender issues. On Saturday, Nov 28, Rita was stabbed 20 times in her apartment. A neighbor called the police and Rita was rushed to the hospital, but passed away from cardiac arrest only moments after being admitted. Twelve years later, Rita’s murderer (or murderers) has still not been found.

In 1999, one year after Rita’s murder, advocate and writer Gwendolyn Ann Smith coordinated a vigil in Rita’s honor. The vigil commemorated not only Rita, but also all the transgender people lost to violence and hatred.

The following is a list of scheduled events across the United States to honor the Transgender Day of Remembrance.  See the most updated list at www.transgenderdor.org and follow @Transgenderdor on Twitter.
