Content Warning: This article makes mention of anti-trans violence. 

This Saturday, November 20th, community will gather in Confederation Park to commemorate Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR) with a candlelit vigil. The event is being organized by PARN’s 2SLGBTQIA advocacy group, the QueeRAdicals. 

Earlier in the day, from 1-3pm, there will be an online panel discussion with members of the Nogojiwanong trans community on the topics of ‘community, safety, and wellness’ living in Nogo-Ptbo.

What is Trans Day of Remembrance? 

Trans Day of Remembrance is internationally recognized each year on November 20th, and honours trans, two-spirit, non-binary, and gender diverse people whose lives were taken by anti-trans violence. TDoR was established by trans activist Gwendolyn Ann Smith in 1999, after the brutal killing of Rita Hester, a Black trans woman in Massachusetts. In the two decades since, TDoR has been observed in dozens of countries, inspiring millions to work towards ending transphobia. 

This day provides an opportunity to reflect on how we can support and uplift trans people in our community, and make Nogo-Ptbo a better, safer, more inclusive place for our trans siblings to live in. 

If you plan on attending Saturday’s in-person event, physical distancing and masks are strongly encouraged. If you have any questions or for more information please email marty@parn.ca

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

"Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system."
