Location: uptown campus
We invite you to take part in the first Transgender Day of Remembrance on Tulane University's campus. The event began in the northeast 14 years ago and quickly spread throughout the world as a means to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia; the event acts to bring attention to the continued violence endured by trans people, and trans women of color in particular. TDoR is now observed in over 185 cities in more than 20 countries.
The participation of faculty, staff, and students offers support to transgender and gender non-conforming students on campus who live with a fear of violence on a daily basis. This year we will remember 38 people, including two trans people from New Orleans, who were murdered in the last year as a result of transphobia.
The ceremony will begin promptly at 5pm, we will read the names of those who have been murdered, light candles and then walk over to the Girl Inside screening and panel discussion, as part of Newcomb's Feminist Film series.
