The GLBT Center is observing Transgender Awareness Week from Monday, November 18th to Friday, November 22nd. The impetus for this week of events is Transgender Day of Remembrance, a global, annual observance for transgender individuals who were murdered over the past year. The Transgender Day of Remembrance Memorial Sculpture will be on display in the GLBT Center all week. Please visit us in Suite 5230 of Talley Student Union to pay your respects to those our community has lost.
This year’s Transgender Awareness Week will kick off with guest speaker André Perez on Monday, November 18th from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM in the GLBT Center Lounge. André is an oral historian, educator, filmmaker, and community organizer. He founded the Transgender Oral History Project in 2008, and created traveling multimedia historical exhibit about transgender activism in 2009. André is Director of America in Transition, a documentary web series and community engagement campaign looking at social justice from the perspective of trans people from marginalized communities.
