Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester’s death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Come together with community to remember our transgender, gender nonconforming, and non binary folks that have been taken from us this past year.Share a meal with community, listen to stories from our trans siblings, and find strengths in the memories of those lost.
