Ribbon, Transgender Day Of Remembrance

MOL.2014.131.1

About this object

This ribbon was one of many handed out to people attending the Transgender Day of Remembrance commemorations at the Museum of Liverpool, 20 November 2014 as part of a city wide commemoration event.

On the day there was a wreath laying ceremony in the exhibition, April Ashley: Portrait of a Lady where wreaths from National Museums Liverpool (NML), the Trans* Community and Merseyside Police were laid. Representatives from NML, Armistead Centre, Merseyside Police, Transforum, Homotopia and Trans-Chester then joined visitors and staff in the Museum in sharing a minute’s silence to remember those who have been killed because of transphobia. After the silence there was a panel discussion led by representatives from Homotopia, Merseyside Police and the local trans* community.
