Transgender Day of Remembrance

Rainbow flag with black lettering to front

Transgender Day of Remembrance is marked each year on 20 November. It is a day on which we celebrate our trans staff and students, but also remember those affected by violence against the trans community in the UK and beyond, particularly over the last year. We will mark the day by a short ceremony at 1pm as follows.

Flag-raising ceremony and speeches 

Tuesday 20 November, 1.00pm - 1.40pm, flagpole between Whiteknights House and the Library.

This event is hosted by Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Van de Noort, by Nozomi Tolworthy the RUSU Diversity Officer, and by Dean for Diversity and Inclusion Simon Chandler-Wilde. It will feature short speeches from the Acting VC on behalf of the University, and from the trans community, including guest speaker Amber Edwards, Chair of the Oracle Pride Employee Network, Oracle. Representatives of RUSU and our LGBT+ Staff Network will read out the names of some of those worldwide who have suffered death from transphobic violence in the last year.

All staff and students are welcome to join us to mark this occasion and pay our respects.
