Since 1999, the Transgender Day of Remembrance has been observed annually on November 20, following the murder of Rita Hester.

Rita Hester was a Black transgender woman from Massachusetts who was killed in 1998 in her own apartment. Her case remains unsolved. The lack of media attention over her murder highlighted the disproportionate ways in which the death of Black, queer, and trans people are taken up in public discourse.

As a result, an outpouring of grief and anger sparked a movement and an annual vigil that honours Rita Hester and the lives of transgender people. Known as the Transgender Day of Remembrance, the day seeks to commemorate the trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people who have lost their lives to violence and transphobia.

“Sing Your Song True Equality Matters Inclusive Choir” was formed with a couple of visions in mind!

Firstly it was to create the best little choir in the world, where Inclusion and harmony are the benchmarks for success. Absolutely free to attend and all are very welcome, even those who say they dont sing 😉 

Secondly, to achieve the dream of performing a Les Mis flashmob!

After achieving the first objective, we are working on the second 🙂
