Transgender Day of Remembrance

The Pride Center of Staten Island’s Transgender Day of Remembrance event serves to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people and to publicly honor the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten.
 
This day of remembrance gives transgender people and allies a chance to step forward and remember those who have died by anti-transgender violence and empower the transgender and gender-expansive community.

About National Coming Out Day

Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally. Today we mark the 31st. anniversary of National Coming Out Day!

Thirty-One years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10.

Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied – STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.
