Trans Day of Remembrance & Trans Week of Liberation

Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR)

November 20 marks the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to remember the lives of trans people who have lost their lives as a result of trans-antagonistic violence. In Fall 2020, the LGBTQ Resource Center hosted our TDOR performance on November 6. We collaborated with Multicultural Affairs and their Native Heritage Month to present SIJSIWAYULU, a play written by Xemi Tapepechul with songs by Nantzin Paula Lopez and Nantzin Anastacia Lopez Lopez.

SIJSIWAYULU is a two-Femme play about reclaiming two-spirit identity through indigenous Salvadoran culture and diaspora and empowering the ancestral goddess within. It is presented in honor of Angel Rose, who lost her life in December 2019.

Trans Week of Liberation (TWoL)

Every spring, the LGBTQ Resource Center shifts the focus from remembrance to liberation with Transgender Week of Liberation. While we recognize that the national event is named “Transgender Day of Visibility,” we believe that visibility alone is not enough. We challenge ourselves and encourage you to push beyond visibility and towards transgender liberation.
