Transgender Day of Remembrance

Gainesville, FL

History of TDOR

Transgender Day of Remembrance, also known as TDOR, is a vigil held yearly on November 20th to raise public awareness of violence against transgender people, as well as, mourn and honor the lives of those who might otherwise be forgotten. This day also provides an opportunity for the City of Gainesville and the surrounding areas to step forward and stand in vigil to remember those who have died by anti-transgender violence.

Transgender Day of Remembrance was started in the Castro district of San Francisco on November 20th, 1999 as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman of color who was killed in November of 1998. Now TDOR is being held globally in locations such as Australia, Canada, The Philippines, Russia, South Korea and many more.
