The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, is observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.

This year the LGBT Resource Center is honored to invite Ruby Corado to deliver the 2018 TDoR Keynote Address. Ruby has devoted over 20 years to advocating for LGBTQ human rights, transgender liberation, immigration equality, access to healthcare, and fighting against hate crimes and violence.

With a group of friends, Corado started Casa Ruby LGBT Community Center by organizing and building a community in parks, churches, and businesses, often facing discrimination and rejection. Casa Ruby is the only LGBTQ bilingual and multicultural organization in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area employing almost 50 people and providing services to more than 6,000 Queer and Trans folks each year.

Free & Confidential HIV and STI Testing

World AIDS Day originated at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programs for AIDS Prevention. Since then, every year United Nations agencies, governments, local and community organizations join together to campaign around specific themes related to AIDS and HIV prevention. This year’s theme, which will be marking its 30th anniversary on December 1st, is “Know your status.”

Stop by the LGBT Resource Center on Friday, Nov. 30 from 11am to 3pm and get free and confidential HIV and STI testing by ACR Health's The Q Center. You can also learn more about STI and HIV prevention, including access to PrEP.
