2013 Transgender Awareness MonthPosted: November 13th, 2013 By: Michelle Kipper
The 2013 Transgender Day of Remembrance will be observed globally on November 20th. Since it’s inception 15 years ago, the Transgender Day of Remembrance has become a day when people put aside their differences and come together to remember the lives we’ve lost in the trans community due to transphobia.
Throughout this month the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health (CoE) will be participating in various events and encourages others to attend local Transgender Day of Remembrance.
