INTERNATIONAL Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) was commemorated by the Haus of Khameleon today.
Haus of Khameleon Trans Feminist activist Miki Wali said the celebration was a human rights initiative to commemorate the many transgender persons of all diversities in the country, across the Pacific and the world.
“This day is also a time to further the conversations pertaining to the everyday multiple intersecting forms violence, discrimination and gender stereotypes,” Wali said.
Wali said the day of remembrance served several purposes, and that included raising public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people in the country and the world over.
The initiative was held in partnership with the Asia Pacific Transgender Network.
