Transgender Pride FlagThis November marks the 10th year that the Transgender Day of Remembrance has been set aside to remember those who have died as a result of anti transgender hatred or prejudice.

November 23rd will be the third time that Manchester has honoured the occasion. Manchester's memorial hopes to honour the memory of all those who have died, while affirming people's resolve to report hate crime.

The memorial will begin at 3.45 in Sackville Park. At 4pm there will be a minutes silence by the Beacon of Hope, followed by a reading of the names of the deceased.

The reading will take place by candlelight and you are advised to bring a candle holder if possible. The vigil will take place for approximately one hour, and will be followed by an informal gathering at Taurus on Canal Street.
