Last night Trans Day of Remembrance was held in Bradford, a somber event to remember all who have been killed by transphobic violence in 2018.
Each candle in this picture represents each person on this years list, far more than there should ever be lit. The candle in the center represents all who committed suicide because of the pressure transphobia put on them.
The event last night was a stunning display of support for the trans community, shown by both the actions and attendance to the service.
Thank you to all who attended last night and a huge thank you to Councillor Richard Dunbar, Trans Mission and Bradford Council for all your parts in making this poignant event happen.
Today is Trans Day Of Remembrance.
Today is the day we come together to pay our respects to all the victims of Transphobia around the world and remember the names of all those killed.
TDOR in Bradford will be held tonight in the Banqueting Suite in Bradford Civic Hall from 6 – 8pm, followed by a chance for people to gather together for refreshments, reflection and support at the Equity Centre.
The next cafe will be hosted by Thursgay, the GBT men’s group from 1 – 4 pm at the Equity Centre.
