We will start the evening by gathering at the Pridehouse to put the
names of those who aren’t with us on a TDOR 2014 banner and remember
their lives in solidarity.
We will then head to Pearl Street to hear
from local trans*-identified leaders in celebration of the progress our
community has made in the last year and talk about where we will be
going in the future.
Our ceremony will culminate in a silent march
down Pearl Street in solidarity with those who are no longer with us and
a candlelight vigil in the First United Methodist Church’s Labyrinth to
remember our fallen sisters, brothers, and others who have lost their
lives to hatred and intolerance.

support of our community. We will also be having a clothing exchange, so
bring your pre-transition clothes that have been wasting away in the
closet!

The mission of Trans* Awareness Week is to unite and educate
the trans* community and its allies through workshops, social gatherings, and other
events to create a truly inclusive community to inspire and embrace the multigender experience.

*Trans*— An umbrella term encompassing a wide range of identities,
appearances, and/or behaviors that fall outside stereotypical gender
norms of either male or female. The transgender umbrella includes, but
is not limited to, individuals who behave and/or dress differently
from their gender assigned at birth (i.e.- a female who wears men's
clothing); individuals who do not identify as either male or female;
and individuals who identify as a gender different from their gender
assigned at birth (for example, a person born male, and now identifies
as female [MtF] or vice versa [FtM]).
