About Trans Day of Remembrance

Trans Day of Remembrance takes place every November 20 to honour trans-identified people who have lost their lives as a result of systemic and social transphobia and violence.

About Trans Awareness Month at Ryerson

Trans Awareness Month at Ryerson is an annual initiative led by Positive Space. 

Ryerson community members are invited to participate in advocacy and educational events that celebrate, honour and raise the visibility of the trans community. We also honour the memory of trans people whose live were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence on November 20 for Trans Day of Remembrace. 

This year’s events were organized in partnership with committee members from the Library, The Catalyst at FCAD, Faculty of Community Services, Faculty of Communication and Design, Athletics, Human Resources, the Academic Success Centre, Internal Audit, Yeates School of Graduate Student and the Office of the Vice-President Administration and Operations.
