Transgender Day of RemembranceNovember 20, 2013
The Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance and opportunity to memorialize people who have been killed because of anti-transgender violence. November 20 is also an occasion to acknowledge that there is ongoing violence and discrimination against transgender people.
Discrimination because of gender identity or gender expression is any action based on a persons’ sex, intentional or not, that imposes burdens on an individual or group and not on others, or that withholds or limits access to benefits available to other members of society. Under The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, discrimination because of gender identity or gender expression is against the law in Saskatchewan.
