TDoR

A​ ​day​ ​of​ ​events​ ​are​ ​planned​ ​across​ ​Liverpool​​ ​in​ ​support​ ​of​ ​Transgender Day​ ​of​ ​Remembrance​ ​(TDoR)​ ​on​ ​Monday​ ​20th​ ​November​ .

TDoR​ ​is​ ​an​ ​annual​ ​event​ ​remembering​ ​those​ ​who​ ​have​ ​been killed​ ​or​ ​have​ ​taken​ ​their​ ​own​ ​lives​ ​due​ ​to​ ​transphobic​ ​violence​ ​or​ ​discrimination.​ ​This number is annually in the hundreds​ and last year the list​ ​included​ ​295​ ​names.​ ​

In solidarity with TDoR, venues across the city will light​ ​the​ ​skyline​ ​​with​ ​the​ ​pink,​ ​blue​ ​and white​ ​colours​ ​of​ ​the​ ​transgender​ ​flag. ​The ​​Museum​ ​of​ ​Liverpool​​ ​will​ also ​be​ ​hosting​ ​a​ ​moment’s silence​ ​and​ ​short​ ​wreath​ ​laying​ ​service​ ​at​ ​2pm. Followed by ​​Liverpool​ ​Town​ ​Hall​​​ ​hosting​ ​their​ ​4th​ ​annual​ ​transgender​ ​flag​ ​raising​ ​event at 4pm.

At 6pm the annual  ​​Transgender​ ​Day​ ​of​ ​Remembrance​ ​vigil​​ ​will​ ​be​ ​held​ ​at​ ​Exchange​ ​Station,​ ​Tithebarn Street. The​ ​event​ ​is​ ​free​ ​and​ ​everyone​ ​is welcome​ ​to​ ​attend. However,​ ​parents​ ​are​ ​advised​ ​that​, ​due​ ​to​ ​this​ ​being​ ​a​ ​memorial​ ​event, some​ ​content​ ​may​ ​be​ ​unsuitable​ ​for​ ​young​ ​children.​ ​
