TDoV is a day to show your support for the trans community. It aims to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community. Unlike Transgender Day of Remembrance, this is not a day for mourning: this is a day to be empowered and get the recognition we deserve!

Catcalls, sexist comments, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault in public spaces.... Gender-based street harassment impacts all women and many men, especially in the LGBQT community, worldwide.

~~Join an ONLINE day of action for the 4th annual International Day Against Victim-Blaming, commemorating and continuing the amazing ongoing international actions against sexual violence and victim-blaming. Start conversations, post pictures, offer support, make a statement, share a resource. Speak out against the intersections of discrimination and shaming that survivors face as women who were 'asking for it', people who were drunk, as trans* people and queers, as sex workers, as prisoners, as migrants, as people of colour, as people living with disabilities, as men, as children, etc. Victim-blaming comes in all shapes and forms and we need to fight back against all of it to support survivors in our communities. Take up space on April 3rd to fight for the right to live free of sexual violence and victim-blaming. Because survivors deserve our support not our scrutiny. #IDAVB #EndVictimBlaming

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), which occurs annually on November 20, is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia (the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people) and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.The Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in 1998 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a trans woman who is a graphic designer, columnist, and activist,to memorialize the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. Since its inception, TDoR has been held annually on November 20, and it has slowly evolved from the web-based project started by Smith into an international day of action. TDoR has been observed in more than 20 countries.For a list of events visit http://tdor.info/category/tdor-locations/
