Transgender Remembrance Evening

Creating a space for remembrance and celebration

An evening of remembrance and celebration

Stonewall Housing, Gendered Intelligence and New Unity are hosting a evening in honour of the Transgender Day of Remembrance (officially the 20th of November, but being held on Friday to help make it more accessible for people to attend.)


There will be light refreshments and musical performances as well as open space for people to celebrate the lives of trans* people both those lost and those here remembering them in a open spiritual or non spiritual space. This event is also open to allies of the trans* community.


Our goal for this event is to provide a welcoming and open space for people to mourn, celebrate, speak up, stay silent and/or just be in solidarity with other people in the trans* community.


We encourage people to bring a celebration or remembrance of a person in the trans* community to share with the space, this could be a photo, drawing, poem, memento, simply a story told or another form of your choosing.


A moment of silence will be observed,and this is a welcoming space for people of any faith or none.


238 Trans* people have been murdered worldwide in the last year- a statistic highlighted in this report :

Stonewall Housing

Since 1990, we’ve given advice about different housing issues to thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. This year we celebrate 30 years of supporting the LGBT community.


If you need support or advice you can phone us, or you can come along to one of our drop-in surgeries. Some of the housing issues we’ve helped LGBT people with include:

  • if you’re homeless or at risk of becoming homeless;
  • if your relationship with your family has broken down because of your sexual orientation or gender identity;
  • if you’ve been victimised or harassed;
  • if you need to escape from domestic abuse;
  • if you need advice about a dispute with your landlord;
  • if you need advice with your housing benefits.

Phone our Advice Line on 020 7359 5767 for confidential advice. The Advice Line is open every weekday between 10 am and 1pm, then between 2pm and 5pm.
