Remembering those we have lost can open minds and save lives.
Each November since 2003, we honor the International Transgender Day of Remembrance with our Trans Remembrance Display, a weeklong memorial honoring the many victims of transgender-related violence. This year’s memorial will be on display Nov.12-16 on the HUB Wall.
The International Transgender Day of Remembrance was created to memorialize all those killed due to anti-transgender prejudice and hatred. It takes place annually to honor Rita Hester. Rita’s murder on November 28, 1998, led to an historic 1999 San Francisco candlelight vigil and to the designation of Nov. 20 as the day we remember those we have lost.
Rita Hester's murder - like most anti-transgender murder cases - has yet to be solved.
