Statement on Transgender Day of Remembrance

The Trans Care BC team stands in solidarity with Two-Spirit, trans, and gender diverse people, their families, and allies on this November 20th, the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR).

Since 1999, TDoR has been a day of observance meant both to remember those whose lives were lost to anti-trans violence, and to highlight how transphobia - combined with sexism, poverty, racism, and colonialism – continues to disproportionately impact racialized Two-Spirit, trans, and gender diverse people – especially trans women of colour. 

November can be a particularly difficult time of year for many people. We encourage people to make time for the practices that help you stay resilient such as connecting with friends and loved ones, expressing yourself creatively, honouring your spirituality, eating delicious foods or moving your body in ways that feel good for you. 

To widen your knowledge of gender diversity and to join the ongoing dialogue between gender diverse people and their allies, we also encourage you to complete our Indigenous Gender Diversity and Introduction to Gender Diversity online modules, available free of charge to all. 
We share our deep gratitude for the individuals, peer-led community programs, and gender-affirming and inclusive services working throughout the province to address inequities that Two-Spirit, trans, and gender diverse people face.
