Event Time: November 10, 2021 5:00 pm
What challenges face transgender individuals in Philadelphia? Where can they turn for help? What recourse do they have in the face of discrimination?
Please join us on Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for an event centered around the voices of trans community members in Philadelphia. Individuals will share their experiences directly with service providers, policymakers, and other supporters, and offer their perspective on how systems can best serve individuals and communities.
This free, virtual event is hosted by the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS), the Office of LGBT Affairs, and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
For questions about this event, contact DBHIDS.LGBTQ@phila.gov.
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence that year. The day was established in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998.
