Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on 20 November that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. The week before TDOR, people and organizations around the country participate in Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility of transgender people and address issues members of the community face.
Join LGBTIQ+ Health Australian members and friends for Trans Awareness Week and Trans Day of Remembrance events across the country.
