2012 VANCOUVER TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

Posted in ---- on November 15, 2012 by Vancouver Transgender Day of Remembrance (Society)

Due to fairly large difference in organizing and political philosophy – the Vancouver Transgender Day of Remembrance is pulling out of their involvement with the trans day of remembrance at UBC – unceded and occupied coast salish territory. Lack of meaningful collaboration is not ok – especially from such a place of privilege and entitlement.
