2011 Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil
THE GENDER HEALTH CENTER AND MANY OTHERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT. This 13th International 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.
Officiants: Rev. Canon Lynell Walker (Trinity), Rev. Rosario Vargas (MCC), Sr. Elena Kelly OSH

In September, 2008, the tragic death of Ruby Molina shook our Sacramento community. This event will pay respect to her memory among our many brothers and sisters who have fallen to ignorance and intolerance. Please contact the Sacramento Police Department if you have any information that may help the investigation into Ruby's death.
