Transgender Day of Remembrance ceremonies to be held in Seattle, Bellevue and Edmonds

The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is a day set aside to remember and honor Transgender persons who were murdered in the last year. Sadly, this year has seen a marked increase in the number of such hate-motivated crimes. The Puget Sound Transgender community and its allies gather to remember those who were taken from us at ceremonies around the Puget Sound region.

We invite you to stand with us.

We are holding four ceremonies for the Transgender Day of Remembrance.



The first two will be held on Friday, November 20.

One will be at Seattle City Hall (entrance at 5th Ave. & Cherry St.) in the Bertha Knight Landes Room. Aidan Key will deliver the keynote address entitled 'Fighting Back.' Captain Smartypants, an ensemble from the Seattle Men's Chorus will perform 'Lean on Me' and Diverse Harmony, an LGBT youth chorus will perform 'True Colors.'

The second ceremony will be held in Edmonds at St. Hilda/St. Patrick Episcopalian Church (15224 52nd Ave. W., Edmonds). The church choir will perform 'Lacrimosa' and 'Ave Verum Corpus,' both by Mozart. Mother Carla Robbinson will be the featured speaker. She is a Transwoman of color who is also an Episcopalian Priest.



We will hold two ceremonies on Saturday, November 21.

The first will be at Seattle's Ravenna United Methodist Church (5751 33rd Ave. NE, Seattle). The Wallingford United Methodist Church Choir will perform 'Agnus Dei' and 'In Paradesium' by Fauré. Mother Robbinson will be the featured speaker.

The second ceremony will be at the First United Methodist Church of Bellevue (1934 108th Ave. NE, Bellevue). The church choir will perform 'Requieum' by Ezekiel and Claire Michelle Burgess will perform 'True Colors.'



Each of the ceremonies will have a reading of the names. The names of the Transgender persons who were murdered in the last year will be read.

Most ceremonies have Transgender persons reading the names. However, at ours we will invite anyone who wants to read a name to come forward and do so.

We remember and honor the Transgender persons who lost their lives because of Transgender hatred and we respect and embrace our allies who stand with us against the hate.



Admission is free and light snacks will be served after the ceremony. For more information call us at 360-353-4193 or email us at TDORSeattle@gmail.com.
