Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR)
November 20th marks the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to remember the lives of trans people who have love their lives as a result of trans-antagonistic violence. For Fall 2020, the LGBT Resource Center is hosting our TDOR performance on November 6 at 7:00 pm. This year, we are collaborating with the Office of Multicultural Affairs and their Native Heritage Month to present SIJSIWAYULU, a play written by Xemi Tapepechul with songs by Nantzin Paula Lopez and Nantzin Anastacia Lopez Lopez.

Flyer for SIJSIWAYULU play on November 6, 2020. Flyer features a drawing of four Indigenous women standing inside a blue circle, in front of a blue background. The text of the flyer is transcribed in the text of the webpage itself.

SIJSIWAYULU is a two-Femme play about reclaiming two-spirit identity through indigenous Salvadoran culture and diaspora and empowering the ancestral goddess within. Presented in honor of Angel Rose, who lost her life in December 2019.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Real-Time Translation (CART) will be provided for this event. For more information or to request accommodations, please contact the LGBT Resource Center at lgbt@syr.edu or 315-443-3983.

Trans Day of Liberation
Every spring, the LGBT Resource Center shifts the focus from remembrance to liberation with Transgender Day of Liberation. While we recognize that the national event is named "Transgender Day of Visbility," we believe that visibility alone is not enough. We challenge ourselves and encourage you to push beyond visibility and towards transgender liberation. TWoL 2020 took place on April 3 and included a "Trans Tea Time" affinity space and a screening of the short film Xanh with a discussion.
