Gscene Editorial Team November 4, 2019

All trans, non-binary, intersex and gender-variant folk, and allies, are welcome to attend two events to mark Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR) in Brighton on Sunday, November 17.

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is the annual observance that honours the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

Dorset Gardens Methodist Church at Dorset Gardens, Brighton, BN2 1RL will be facilitating a service as a space of faith and belief from 1.30–2.30pm with a singing performance from Rainbow Chorus and RC+, and light refreshments provided.

The BMECP Centre at 10A Fleet St, Brighton BN1 2GR will be hosting an opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of those lost, with activities, the sharing of creative work and socialising, from 3–7pm.

Veggie/vegan catering will be provided for a community meal at the BMECP event, which will be in the form of a buffet, including gluten free options.

Trans Pride Brighton & Hove and the Clare Project, have funded these events, and the organisers wish to thank those involved in the community consultation, in particular Trans Pride Brighton & Hove, QTIPoC Narratives, and English Collective of Prostitutes. MindOut is also providing support and signposting.

Both venues are wheelchair accessible. They are sober events and the organisers of TDoR have also politely requested for police to not attend, either on or off duty.
