Monday, November 20th is the 2017 Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), which memorializes trans individuals who have died because of transphobia and acts of violence against the trans community. TDOR was inspired by the vigil held for Rita Hester, a trans woman from Allston, MA, who was murdered in 1998. Boston Pride invites all in our community to come and remember those we have lost. You may find a list of events here. Boston’s transgender community remembers local victims Chanelle Pickett, Debra Forte, Monique Thomas, Georgette Hart, Diane Carter, Denise Pugliesi, Monique Rogers, Lisa Daniels, Rita Hester, CJ Garber, and too many more.
