Please join us for the Mobile observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance in the Ben May Main Library meeting room. We say the names of, and honor, those transgender individuals who have lost their lives this past year due to transphobia and violence. Coffee and donuts will be provided.

Nationally, this is the 19th annual observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance, 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.
