Every other day worldwide we hear about transphobia motivated murders.*
It is important to highlight that these are only those cases that have been reported, and where the victims are recognised as transgender.
Join us and bring a candle along!
Let us commemorate together the transgender victims of last year, and let us draw attention to the frequency and invisibility of hate crimes committed against transgender people.
Date: November 18, 2018, 15:00-15:30
Venue: H-1024 Budapest, Széll Kálmán tér. (at the clock)
Speeches will be given by Csilla Csalos, Dániel Ábrahám Gyarmati and Tóbiás Benjámin Tuza. The poem ‘Úton’ (On the Road) written by Flóra Lukács will be recited.
At the end of the remembrance we will light our candles together.
You won’t miss it even if you are busy. The speeches will be streamed live on Facebook.
