Transgender Day Of Remembrance

Events. At Metropolitan Community Church Of Washington, DC , 474 Ridge Street Northwest, Washington, DC. United states.

Monday November 20 2017, 5:30pm


November 20, 2016 marks the 16th annual observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TdoR), which commemorates those who have been killed due to anti-transgender hatred. The 1998 murder of Rita Hester, a Boston transgender woman, sparked the Remembering Our Dead web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita Hester's murder, like most anti-transgender murder cases, has yet to be solved.
