Transgender Day of Remembrance

November 20 is Transgender Day of Remembrance, writes Una Marie Darragh, SRC Vice President - Student Support.

Each year we remember those individuals who have been killed as a result of transphobia and celebrate their lives.

The University of Glasgow students and staff will come together on November 20 to show our support of the transgender community, both within our University and world-wide, and raise awareness of the magnitude of transphobic hate crimes.

At 12pm we will raise the transgender flag on the north flagpole of the University.

At 6pm we will have some speeches and a candle light vigil in the cloisters to commemorate those lives that have been claimed.

After the vigil, everyone is welcome to come to the Gilchrist Postgraduate club.

This event is open to everyone.

If you require any more information do not hesitate to get in touch with Una Marie Darragh, Vice President Student Support at vp-support@src.gla.ac.uk, or Megan Snedden President of GULGBTQ+ at president@gulgbtqplus.com.
