Transgender Day of Remembrance

11/16

Please join us for the Transgender Day of Remembrance in Rockland County on Sunday, November 16, 2014.

The day will begin with a film to be shown at Nyack Library:

“Just Gender”

Co-Sponsored by Rivertown Film

2:30pm at Nyack Library, 58 S. Broadway, Nyack, NY

Just Gender tackles the all too often misunderstood world of transgender. The film explores the common myths and misunderstandings about transgendered people. It also explores the confusion between sexual orientation and gender identity, as reflected in the rigid binary view of the world generally held by society. Just Gender also touches on the discrimination, hardships and brutality resulting from those misconceptions and prejudices, including the numerous deaths caused by hate each year.

 

Walk & Vigil for Transgender Remembrance:
4:00pm (following the film)
Meet in front of Nyack Library, 59 S. Broadway, Nyack, NY
Walk from Nyack Library to Veteran’s Park in Nyack to a vigil and speak out in remembrance of Transgender people who have been killed because of transphobia (fear or hatred of those who are transgender or gender non-conforming). All are welcome to participate.

If you have any questions, please contact VCS Pride, (845) 634-5729 x307 or email gpr@vcs-inc.org.
