Friday, November 20, 2020 - Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR)

Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR) is observed annually and internationally on November 20 to honour the memory of the trans people who have lost their lives as a result of transphobic violence that year.

Trans and nonbinary people continue to face marginalization and discrimination in the form of transphobia. This can manifest as negative attitudes and beliefs about trans people, irrational fears and misunderstandings, a disbelief or discounting of a person’s pronouns or their gender identity, derogatory language and name-calling, and bullying, abuse, and violence.

For more information on how to create more trans-inclusive spaces and to show your support, please visit: https://sgdo.utoronto.ca/programs/trans-day-of-remembrance

These Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR) events are collaboratively hosted by Sexual & Gender Diversity Office (SGDO), Sexual Violence Prevention & Support Centre (SVPSC), UTM Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office (UTM EDIO), UTSC Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office (UTSC EDIO), UTM Women & Gender Equity Centre (WGEC), UTM Students’ Union (UTMSU), and UTSC Women’s & Trans Centre (UTSC WTC).
