Transgender Day of Remembrance was marked virtually for many cities across the world. The impact of COVID-19 added layers of emotional strain to those who wanted to gather in person, to grieve and mourn together, to honor the lives of those who had died this past year from anti-transgender violence.
In Milwaukee, WI, FORGE’s home base, we marked the day with a virtual event, filled with 14 short speeches, music, remembrances from prior years, and bookended with our community’s faith leaders grounding and centering us all.
MKE TDOR: Ground. Speak. Remember. Connect.
