Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigil In Saint John

A ceremony recognizing Transgender Day of Remembrance is being held in Saint John next week.  The memorial is bringing attention to the violence against people who are transgender. 

The ceremony is a part of the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, that started in San Francisco back in 1999.

Taylor Bissnette is organizing the event, they tell CHSJ News,  people are being attacked just for being who they are, and not fitting into social norms.

The memorial will be held on November 20, meeting at King's Square at 7:30, leading to a Vigil at the Boardwalk.
