Nashville Transgender Day of Rememberance

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM) (CST)


What: Nashville Transgender Day of Remembrance
When: Tuesday, November 16th, 6 pm - 7 pm
Where: Scarritt Bennett Chapel, Wightman Chapel, 1110 19th Ave. South

Since 1999, International Transgender Day of Remembrance has occurred annually on Nov. 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of anti-transgender violence and transphobia. TDOR brings attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community and its resilience through difficult and demeaning times. This special day also allows for the transgender leaders of Nashville to come together and share space with their community and loved ones.

This year’s service for the Nashville community will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Scarritt Bennett Chapel, as well as streaming at

The event is hosted by Vanderbilt’s Office of LGBTQI Life in collaboration with local trans activists and community members. The event is open to all.

Those who would like to attend in person are encouraged to arrive a bit early, as space will be limited. Masks will be *required* for all attendees. Unfortunately, due to COVID precautions, there will not be a reception following the ceremony this year. Although we regret not being able to host the reception after, we do hope that the opportunity for many to gather for an in-person service this year offers some comfort.

Speakers include:

  • Dahron Johnson
  • Marissa Richmond
  • Students from Glissen
  • Ray Holloman
  • Shawn Reilly
  • Mina Shedd
  • Simba Woodard

Thank you from the Office of LGBTQI Life at Vanderbilt and transgender leaders from the Nashville community. For more information, contact Linzie Treadway at
