NE Ohio Transgender Day of Remembrance
The Day of Remembrance started in 1999 when Rita Hester was murdered because she was transgender. We need to work harder on stopping the violence against the transgender/non-binary community because people are afraid of who we are, how we identify and now, even which restroom we use! We must stop the hate!
Won’t you join me this year as we remember those in the transgender community who have been killed not only by others but sadly by their own hands. Over the past year we have seen an increase in suicides within the transgender/non-binary community, especially our youth. We need to step up and help our youth, as well as our adults, to see that it is not impossible to be who they are and that they are loved however they identify! When will the killing stop? When will the suicides stop? Not until we help make it stop!
We will gather in a different place from Trinity Cathedral starting at 5:30pm and stepping off at 5:45pm for our candle light walking vigil over to Trinity where the rest of the memorial will take place. Once that places is secured, I will post it.
