TDoR is a reminder to work together to make this world safer and affirming for 2 Spirit, trans, and non-binary communities. This year’s theme for The 519’s gathering and community vigil is “In Power and Unity”.  It represents the crucial importance to embody solidarity and love in our communities. Together, we are powerful and united, person to person, community to community. And we want to remind you that until everyone is free, no one is truly free.

Trans lives matter every day. 2SLGBTQ+ youth matter every day. Join us.
