Transgender Day Of Remembrance 2019
Transgender Day of Remembrance - Darwin 20 Nov 2019.
This event is run by our local Trans Community and Allies, we welcome you to join us. Please invite people we may not be in touch with, we want to bring the community closer together. Together we are stronger!
Remembering those who have lost their lives as a result of prejudice and violence. It’s important to honour their memory, not only to recognise how far we’ve come but as a reminder of the importance of being ally and standing up to discrimination when we see it.
We have a long way to go in supporting each other, our Trans Community and gender diverse young people may seem to have a lot more support and acceptance in 2019 but the following stats are still far too high!
→ 74% of trans and gender diverse young people experience abuse and discrimination.
→ As a result, 75% of trans and gender diverse young people experience depression, compared to just 15% of the general population.
