Transgender: Day of Remembrance

The 15th Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance was memorialized Wednesday at the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore, located at 10 West Franklin Street. It included interfaith prayers, the reading of names, testimonies, hymns and the lighting of candles. Paster David Carl Olson presided.

Donna Simone Plamondon shared her views with me about the meaning of “Transgender: Day of Remembrance Ceremony.”

I talked with Donna just before the church service began. The essence of the annual ceremony is to “remember those lost, but not forgotten,” as a result of hatred, assaults, intolerance, and murderous violence directed towards transgenders. Donna said that a transgender woman is “one hundred times more likely to be murdered than a woman in the general population.”
