Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to remember, reflect and look to the future. Around the world all too many transgender people lose their lives to transphobic hatecrime; people die because others can’t accept their true gender and it is up to us to ensure this comes to an end.
Join us as we look to the past, the present and the future as we celebrate Transgender Day of Remembrance in Sheffield on the 20th of November 2015.
We start by remembering those who have lost their lives with a candlelit vigil in Millennium Square from 5.30pm.
After this we processed into the Winter Gardens for live music, speeches and the warmth of being together, of being alive. We are proud to say that LGBT Sheffield have put on a fantastic programme for this section of the evening; the perfect start to an unforgiveable evening.
At 6.30pm we invite you to join us at the Sheffield Odeon for the premiere screening of our film Trashing Transphobia, a film made by E.D.E.N Film and the Sheffield LGBT community. Looking at transphobia and how to tackle it, we go on a journey to discover what it’s really like to be trans in Britain in 2015.
The screening is free of charge and is followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. You can reserve tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/screening-of-trashing-transphobia-tickets-19190682849 (and make sure you do as seats are limited.)
Having spent time mourning those who have passed and considering the issues of the present we move into the future to the after party. (VENUE TBC).
Here we come together for a big celebration of life with DJs, live music, performances, prize ceremonies and an opportunity to pledge your support to the transgender community, this will be a night to remember.
