Some of the memorial cards for trans murder and suicide victims at the Bournemouth TDoR 2018 vigil

A short speech from a Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil

This is a short speech I gave at the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) vigil held in Bournemouth, UK on Tuesday 20th November 2018.

I thought I would reproduce here in case anyone else finds it useful in future.

Footnote: The memorial cards we used (all 419 of them, each individually printed and laminated) were produced using the website at https://tdor.translivesmatter.info.

I wrote about the website and the data behind it not that long ago in the blogpost TDoR: Learning more about those we have lost.
