Los Angeles Transgender Day of Remembrance
About D.O.R.: The Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize
those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. This year, in Los Angeles,
the theme for Day of Remembrance is "Healing for the community."
In addition to
remembering the victims of 2006, we work to heal the survivors. This year's
extended ceremonies will heal the wounds of transphobia and oppression, those
inflicted by others and those we inflict upon ourselves.
