DEFGLIS recognises Transgender Awareness Week and International Transgender Day of Remembrance—20 November 2021

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) was founded by Gwendolyn Ann Smith in November 1999 to honour her friend Rita Hester, a transgender African American woman who had been murdered in an act of transphobic violence the previous year.
