International Trans Day of Remembrance 2011 - London

 (I got this via a friend from admin@translondon.org.uk.)

An event to mark International Trans Day of Remembrance 2011
Location:  The 52 Club, Basement, 52 Gower Street, London WC1E 6EB
Date: Sunday 20th November · 4:30pm - 6:30pm, followed by refreshments in 52 Club bar until 9.00pm

The International Trans Day of Remembrance is an opportunity for trans people, their friends, families and allies to come together in a safe space to reflect on those who have lost their lives through violence or suicide because they are trans. It is a time to remember, mourn and celebrate them and to tell their stories so they are not forgotten.

Commemoration through readings, poetry and music
You don’t have to bring or do anything but, as in previous years, we would very much like people to contribute and participate if they wish. If you would like to take part, please bring short stories, readings or poetry and speak to the organisers beforehand – if you prefer not to read yourself, we can find someone else to read the text for you.

The venue is accessible via lift at street level.
