Transgender Day of Remembrance
November 20, 2020
07:00 pm - 08:00 pm
Trans Day of Remembrance is observed annually on the 20th of November to honour the lives of transgender and gender diverse people who have been reported murdered in the last year due to to anti-trans violence.
This event is an opportunity for us to gather, reflect, mourn and mark this day.

We will be reflecting on the past year and reading out the names of those who have lost their lives with a minute’s silent reflection. As well as sharing prayer and poetry.
We mourn their deaths, honour their lives and continue our fight.
Please respect people’s pronouns. If you are not sure, just ask someone what pronouns they use. Examples of pronouns are she/her, he/him, they/them.
If you need to take a break at any time, please do.
You can have your camera on or off whatever is more comfortable for you. But please ensure your microphone is muted during the reading out of the names and silent reflection. Thank you.
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together.
We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
