Trans Day of Remembrance

Positive Space welcomes the TMU community to join us as we observe the Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR). Started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith, TDOR is an annual observance on November 20th that honours the memory of the trans people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-trans violence. Speakers and community leaders will speak to the significance of this day in light of escalating hostilities towards 2SLGBTQ+ communities. 

As a wrap up to Pride programming for fall 2023, we’ll reflect on what we’ve learned, and look forward to what’s to come. The winning design for the Displaying Pride contest will be shared with the community.
