Transgender Day of Remembrance occurs every year on Nov. 20 to memorialize individuals who are victims to anti-transgender violence. This year we remember 23 trans people who were killed in the United States. The majority of those were Black trans women. Join the LGBT* Center, Black Student Union and UNI Proud for a vigil in memory of these people who died this year.
The first LGBT(ea) Time, co-hosted by Black Student Union, will focus on anti-trans and anti-Black violence, as well as intersections of race and gender identity as they relate to Trans Day of Remembrance. Student leaders will speak and there will be time for group discussion and self-reflection. The event is open to anyone, but allies to LGBTQ+ students and students of color are encouraged to participate. Feel free to bring your lunch.
