Transgender Day of Remembrance

On 20th November each year we join students, staff and members of the community to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year we are working with students and colleagues from the University to host a series of events and activities on Tuesday 20th November.

 

Everything on the day will be free of charge but please give a donation in one of our buckets. All money raised will go to transgender charities.

 

12pm – 4pm

Pronoun badges

University House

The LGBTQ+ Society will host a stall to educate people about the use of different pronouns. You will have the opportunity to make your own sticker or decorate a badge with your pronouns.

 

10am - 12pm

Trans Swimming

Sports Centre

The pool at the Sports Centre will be closed to two hours for a private swimming session for people who are trans or non binary.

 

5:30pm - 6pm

Remembrance Ceremony

Outside University House

A short, candle lit ceremony will take place by the plum tree, outside University House. We will read the names of those who have died in the past year and take a moment to reflect on their memory.

 

7:30pm – 9:30pm

Poetry Night

That End, University House

A night of spoken word to remember those whom we've lost or are still fighting just for being themselves. The LGBTQ+ Society have joined in partnership with Writer's Journal to bring you this inclusive event. A safe space for the community to embrace and feel comfortable, where we share our work and come together for a night of solidarity.
