In observance of the 13th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance, New York City’s LGBT Community Center will hold an event this Friday, November 18, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The event is being coordinated by the Gender Identity Project (GIP) at the Center, and it is being sponsored by several LGBT organizations and LGBT-supportive agencies, including GLAAD. This is a free event and will include a solemn prayer, candlelight vigil, inspirational speakers, community voices, refreshments, and educational resources and services.

The GIP offers a variety of resources and support to transgender and gender non-conforming people in New York.  Partners, family members, allies, service providers, and others seeking to learn more about the issues affecting the transgender and gender non-conforming communities are encouraged to attend the GIP’s Transgender Day of Remembrance event. For those not living in the New York City area, an international list of events being held to commemorate the 13th Transgender Day of Remembrance can be found here.

GLAAD thanks New York City’s LGBT Community Center and the many other organizations hosting events for the Transgender Day of Remembrance and for demonstrating the resilience of a community in the face of violence.
