On Monday November 19th the LICF family will join together with the Transgender Community to say NO to violence bigotry and hate and to remember those who were lost to hate crimes in this past year by attending the Long Island Transgender Day of Remembrance(TDOR).
TDOR will take place at SUNY Farmingdale State College in the Little Theater in Roosevelt Hall. They ask that you gather at 6:30 PM with the service starting by 7 PM. TDOR serves to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people and to publicly mourn and honor the lives of victims of anti-transgender violence.
The service consists of speakers, musicians and trans voices in which local transgender people speak of their life journeys in dealing with their gender identity. The service culminates with the very emotional reading of the names of those lost during a candlelight vigil.
The LICF Gospel Choir will be performing at the event and our DL Eddie will be the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. The key note speaker will be Kylie Waddy of the NYC LGBT Center.
