Boston Trans Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance is November 20th honoring the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. Our LGBT community sadly acknowledges so many senseless untimely deaths of our transgender brothers & sisters murdered in 2015 just for being gender nonconforming individuals. This is also Transgender Awareness Week. In Boston there will be a screening of the documentary TRANSFORME, an investigation into the lives of four transgender teenagers. It shows the lives of Alex, Dan, Luna & Piper sharing their personal stories about coming out & the difficulties & triumphs they faced throughout the process. A panel discussion on trans youth will follow the screening. The panel will be moderated by Maxwell Ng, Chair of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) a group dedicated to ending discrimination on the basis of gender identity & gender expression. Currently MTPC is working on legislation to protect trans people in public accommodations. The event takes place at Fenway Health, 1340 Boylston Street in Boston on Saturday, November 21st starting at 10:30A. This year in Boston Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) will be celebrated on Sunday, November 22nd, starting at 4P at St Paul’s Cathedral at 138 Tremont Street in Boston. Boston Pride is a co-sponsor of the event & invites everyone to attend & to show your support for our transgender community. The event is followed by a Potluck Reception at 6:30P
