Pride in Plymouth received a small grant from the Plymouth City Council ‘Welcoming City Fund’ to facilitate a trans awareness event that was originally planned to coincide with Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20th).
However as there is another fantastic TDOR event happening in the region, it therefore makes more sense for us to promote and support that event rather than hold our own on the day. Pride in Plymouth are offering FREE transport from Plymouth to Torquay on November 20th please note spaces are limited and will be offered on first come first served basis – So please contact us if you would like to take advantage of this.
We then intend to use the remaining money to facilitate a trans awareness event in January 2015. We look forward to working with other organisations such as Transfigurations, Trans Information, Proud 2 Be Project and service providers to deliver an educational event that will include a film that will inspire open discussion.
The TDOR Event 2014 – The day we remember all those who have lost their lives due to transphobic hate.
Venue: The Horizon Centre, Torbay Hospital, Torquay, TQ2 7BP
Time: 6.45pm for 7.15pm start
Everybody is welcome to come along to this event whereby we remember those who have been murdered (or driven to suicide) by transphobia. By bringing this to the attention of the general public, it is hoped that these terrible crimes will become a thing of the past.
The event will be attended by members of the Devon and Cornwall Police and other dignitaries.
The Horizon Centre is the new learning and development centre within the Torbay Hospital complex and is best found from the Lawes Bridge Entrance.
