20 november, Amsterdam: Transgender Day of Remembrance

Op 20 november vindt in Amsterdam de vijftiende editie plaats van de jaarlijkse internationale herdenking van alle mensen die hun leven verloren door anti-transgender geweld. In de Singelkerk wordt een ceremonie gehouden, waarna een korte tocht volgt naar het Homomonument.

Uit de oproeptekst: “Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual international remembrance on November 20th that honors those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. All these victims who we lost to violence and death shall be remembered. Every year the numbers of registered victims increases. This years’ 15th edition shall be joined by the National TDOR ceremony. Therefore Transgender Netwerk Nederland shall help us with co-financing the event! Join us to remember these community members! The ceremony shall be inside the Singelkerk/ Singel Church, the Westerkerk/Wester Church is closed due to renovation. We shall finalize our ceremony with a short walk to the Homomonument where all flowers shall be laid down.”
