Transgender Day of Remembrance – November 20 6pm

Hi QAPA-ers,

We wanted to pass on a special message from one of our members who is active in the transgender community, inviting everyone to the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20.

Location: Cathedral of St Paul, 138 Tremont St (at Park St T stop), Boston.

TDOR organizers have reached out to the asian community and we should represent!

***************************
Thanksgiving isn’t the only T-Day in November. November is also the time for the annual Trans Day of Remembrance.
From the MTPC website (http://www.masstpc.org/dor/):
The annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) memorializes individuals who have been killed throughout the world in the previous year because of anti-transgender hatred. Between 2008 and 2009, at least 163 people were murdered because of their gender identity or gender expression. Boston’s community observes with inspirational speakers, community SpeakOut, candlelight vigil, and hot apple cider with snacks and camaraderie afterward.
