10 Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigils You Can Attend Nationwide

Gather with other members of the LGBTQ community and allies to honor the trans lives we've lost in 2018.

With legal protections for America's transgender and gender non-conforming community under repeated attack by the Trump administration, this year's Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on November 20 feels especially dire.

First launched in 1999, TDOR aims to honor the lives of trans people lost to anti-transgender violence each year. Many LGBTQ centers in cities and towns around the country hold candlelit vigils around this time every year in solidarity. Below, find 10 TDOR vigils you can attend nationwide, listed by their host organization and city.
