About:

The Trans Day of Remembrance is an opportunity for trans people, their friends, families and allies to come together in a safe sapce to reflect on those who have lost their lives through violence or suicide because they are trans. It is a time to remember, mourn and celebrate them and to tell their stories so they are not forgotten.

You don’t have to bring or do anything but, as in previous years, we would very much like people to contribute and participate if they wish. If you would like to take part, please bring short stories, readings or poetry and speak to the organiser beforehand – if you prefer not to read yourself, we can find someone else to read your text for you.

The event is organised by Camden LGBT Forum in partnership with the trans community, and funded by Camden Council.
