Transgender Day of Remembrance

Posted on Nov 15 , 2017

On November 16th, and 20th, the Queer Resource Center and various campus partnerships will be working together to engage our campus in recognition of the Transgender Day of Remembrance. On this day, which occurs annually on November 20th, we will memorialize those who have lost their lives because of transphobia and where it intersects with misogyny, misandry, race, class, and ability among others, and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the Trans* community. 

Check out the various events happening below:

Transgender Day of Remembrance
Date/Time: Monday, Nov. 20th at 6:30-8:00pm 
Location: Diversions in Stevenson Union Ground Level

TDOR will highlight the impact of how our society deals with trans identified individuals highlighting those folks in our prison system, in poverty, and those with numerous marginalized identities. The intention of the event is to remember the lives lost as well as to honor and celebrate them as we work to create resistance with our existence, raise awareness and encourage action. Refreshments will be provided. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters will be present at this event.

 

Trans Ally Training Workshop

Date/Time: Thursday, Nov. 16th at 5:30-7:00pm 
Location: Room 306 in Stevenson Union

We will be engaging our campus in a Trans Ally workshop to give some introductory knowledge on trans identities, the value of pronoun usage and how allies can better support Trans and Queer students on our campus and in the community. Refreshments will be provided.

 

If you have questions about any of the events, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Queer Resource Center by email at QRC@sou.edu and/or by phone at 541.552.8329
