Transgender Day of Remembrance

Each year on November 20, the transgender community hosts memorial events for the trans people who were murdered in the past year. ANKORS hosts the TDOR event in Nelson each year, and also supports and promotes the work of other groups creating Transgender Day of Remembrance events in other Kootenay towns.
