Event: Ohio Transgender Day of Remembrance vigils

Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to honor transgender people who were killed because of their transgender identity. The event began in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder in 1998 kicked off the Remembering Our Dead web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil.
