Day of Remembrance
Candlelight Vigil

The Transgender Day of Remembrance memorializes those killed due to their actual or perceived gender identity and expression The first memorial was a candlelight vigil held in Boston in November 1999 to honor Rita Hester, murdered in 1998. Since then, annual memorials have been observed around the world around November 20. Since 2005, our support group has held an Annual Candlelight Vigil in Sacramento in observance of the International Transgender Day of Remembrance on the third Saturday of each November.  All are welcome.

Our Mission

Our primary purpose is to support and help each person to overcome his or her challenges and to enjoy a fulfilling life in this society.  Gender variance is not a disease, but rather a natural human condition.  Throughout human history, many cultures have held gender variant people in high esteem.  But sadly prejudice and violence against gender variant people has been epidemic.  We strive to help our people and their families understand that this condition is natural, no one’s fault, and to learn to affirm and enjoy our lives as who we are within a safe environment.
