2014 Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil

Special thanks to our sponsors: Trinity Cathedral, PFLAG Sacramento, The Gender Health Center, Sacramento LGBT Community Center, River City Gems and to many others for their generous support.

This 16th 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 a Saturday near November 20. All are welcome.

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.


Thanks to all our participants and to all who have donatedtalent and resources in support of our memorials.
