- Cultural Calendar
The Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance dedicated to commemorating and honoring all of the transgender people who have lost their lives due to anti-transgender violence, hate crimes, and discrimination purely because of their gender identity. The day provides a timely and solemn opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges faced by transgender people every day, and to advocate for a more inclusive and accepting society. The day also seeks to draw attention to the discrimination and prejudice faced by transgender people in everyday life across the world.
Today, please join us at PSESD in honoring our friends, associates, students, and other community members in the transgender community.
Celebrate the day with us by attending local events or candlelight vigils, sharing stories, supporting transgender organizations, advocating for legislation supporting transgendered people, or by simply educating yourself about transgender terminology, issues, and the importance of respecting gender identity.
