Local groups including the Transgender Advocacy Council, GLSEN Greater Cincinnati, Greater Cincinnati Human Rights Campaign, Heartland Trans Wellness and the Leelah Alcorn Memorial Highway, among others, are hosting a Transgender Day of Remembrance at the Woodward Theater. Free Mom Hugs Ohio is also involved.
The goal of the event is to “come together and remember transgender people, gender-variant individuals and those perceived to be transgender who have been murdered because of hate.”
7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20. Woodward Theater, 1404 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, facebook.com/transadvocacycouncil.
*An earlier version of this story included Free Mom Hugs Ohio as a host of the event. They are not a host.
