Trans Day of Remembrance Vigil

November 20, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST

On Trans Day of Remembrance, we come together to honor, mourn, and remember our Trans siblings lost to transphobic violence over the past year.
This event will be co-hosted by Grand Rapids Pride Center, Grand Rapids Trans Foundation, and GVSU’s Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center, and will feature a vigil, a reading of names of those we have lost this past year, a remembrance altar, as well as a short program featuring guest speakers and a musician from the local Trans community.
Emotional and mental health resources (and space) will be available. There will be space for socializing and connecting with other attendees following the program.
We will also be collecting donations for the Trans Sistas of Color Project Detroit.
Please park in the Devos Center for Interprofessional Health (DCIH) upper level visitor parking structure. (An image of the lot entrance has been shared on the Discussion thread. Do NOT use the shared Spectrum/GVSU parking ramp straight ahead. A booth attendant will hand you a parking permit to display on your vehicle dashboard once you arrive.
We have hired a local trusted Queer-owned security company (Field Operations & Logistics Agency – FOLA) to be present at this event, in order to ensure the safety and security of our attendees.
