About Transgender Day of Remembrance
Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is annually recognized on November 20. First recognized in 1999, it has since evolved into an international movement aiming to recognize and honor all the Trans* lives which have come before us. Usually, TDOR lands during Fall Break but still we believe it is critical for our campus community to recognize and honor TDOR. During the Fall of 2022 we will be recognizing TDOR early on November 16, 2022.
We thank our campus partners & friends who all came together to make a full day of events possible as we honor and recognize our Transcestors. This event would not have been possible without the support of the Campus Union for Trans Equality & Support, Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center, the Women's Resources Center, La Casa Cultural Latina, The Counseling Center, and much more. Please read below for our full schedule of events:
