Join Us for Trans Day of Remembrance

submitted by

Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is on Monday, November 20. TDOR follows Transgender Awareness Week (Nov. 13-19) and is an annual observance and honoring of the trans community members whose lives we have lost.

This year, LGBTQIA+ Student Services would like to offer you an open invitation to join us for our TDOR services. We will be at Daily Chapel from 10:40 AM – 11:00 AM for a short presentation on the history of TDOR and a brief reflection from the LGBTQIA+ Student Services Program Manager. Later in the day, we will be hosting our annual TDOR Vigil from 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM in the Marshall Room.

The campus community is welcome to attend either Daily Chapel, the vigil, or both to share space and honor our trans community members. The presence and support of allies is appreciated in the space but we humbly ask that non-trans/non-queer folks be mindful of which bodies and voices are prioritized in these spaces.

As part of the TDOR vigil, trans students are welcome and encouraged to share their voices by offering words or reflections if they are comfortable and willing. For more information, please reach out to the LGBTQIA+ Student Services Program Manager at if you are interested in participating.

We hope to have you share these spaces with us on Monday, November 20.

All the best,
LGBTQIA+ Student Services
