Transgender Day of Remembrance (#TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 honoring the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.
Many Unitarian Universalist congregations celebrate and recognize important days in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) calendar, planning services and joining community events in support of the Transgender Day of Remembrance and other LGBT witness opportunities.
In November 1998, Rita Hester was murdered for being transgender. Her murder has yet to be solved. A year later in the city of San Francisco, a candlelight vigil marked Rita’s death and others who had died for simply being or being seen as transgender.
