Next Saturday, November 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance.
For those who may not know, Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to memorialize trans* folks who have been murdered or took their own lives due to discrimination towards their gender identity. This year, Kamloops Pride has partnered with TRUSU Pride to host a vigil where the community can come and pay their respects.
The vigil will be held on Saturday November 20, 2021 at 6pm, and it will be at TRU in front of the Campus Activity Centre. We will be handing out trans* flag stickers, small flags, and we will have LED candles for everyone to use. This is a standing event however there will be chairs available for those who need them.
Please ensure you have comfortable shoes and warm clothing. Allies are welcome and encouraged to attend this event!
Please feel free to reach out to Kamloops Pride via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Take care and see you soon!
