Before the presentation starts, there will be a 30 minute Rememberance of Transpeople. The Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice and to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgendered people, an action that current media doesn’t perform.
