We honor the legacy of Stonewall by coming out to the most authentic PRIDE in 50 years. "It's time for Black Trans excellence to lead OURSELVES."
- Athena Vaughn
Every year in November, the Boston transgender and gender nonconforming communities come together to mourn those who have been taken from us due to anti-transgender violence. This tradition began in 1998, with the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. Now, two decades later, the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is honored worldwide. This is a day to remember the lives of the hundreds of transgender and gender nonconforming people who died by violence over the past year.
