International Transgender Day of Remembrance
St. Louis Candlelight Vigil: THURSDAY NOV. 20 @ 7PM
Washington University in St. Louis, South 40 Clocktower
Reception to follow in The Gargoyle in Mallinkrodt Center
Come together to mourn the people murdered in the past year due to anti-transgender violence. Hear the stories of people who were killed and help raise awareness about violence against those with differing gender identities and gender expressions. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Several St. Louis religious leaders will be present to speak, but the event is not inherently religious. There will also be a discussion about the types of discrimination and hardships that transgender people face today.
Following the meeting at the South 40 clocktower, we will then proceed into into The Gargoyle in Mallinkrodt Center where our guests will speak.
Open to all and wheelchair accessible. If you have questions, or need more information, email pridewu AT gmail DOT com.
