just us for all
A march and vigil tonight will mark the Transgender Day of Remembrance. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the demonstration will memorialize "those who have been killed as a result of transphobia" and seek "to bring attention to the unrelenting violence endured by the transgender umbrella community."
As the sun started to set on Sunday Nov. 20, about 50 people gathered outside of the Asheville Civic Center for the Transgender Day of Remembrance. Holding white candles and paper banners, they marched in silence and reverence to the Vance Monument as part of this worldwide event that memorializes those who have been killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event was co-sponsored by two local groups, Just Us For All and UNC Asheville Alliance. Photos by Megan Dombroski
