Event reminds Ottawa to reflect on high rate of violence against transgender people

Though some may think of events around transgender rights as rallies or protests, the Trans Day of Remembrance stands in contrast as a space of mourning and reflection.
On Monday, Nov. 20, Ottawa’s annual Transgender Day of Remembrance will return to the capital. Organizer Fae Johnstone emphasizes that this is primarily a day for trans folks to mourn through vigil, but also for cis folks to engage with the broad range of issues facing trans communities.
