Your inside connection to all the LGBT-related news that matters in Ohio and beyond!

Transgender Day of Remembrance is this Thursday, Nov. 17, and there are a few events happening around Ohio.

For those unfamiliar, TDOR is nationally recognized every year in November and is a day set aside to commemorate those who have been killed for being transgender.

The transgender hate crimes rate is much higher than that of the LGB community and way higher than that of the national average. Please take the time to recognize TDOR and attend one of the events listed below. (Check out TransOhio.org for more information.)
