International Transgender Day Of Remembrance is a day for us all to unite on our concern for the violence against women and transgender people. We also delight in the spiritual vitality of transgender communities around the world; with a commitment to unite across lines of age, race, culture, class, nationality, worldview and spiritual tradition.

We will be speaking with the leaders of four Melbourne Transgender support groups, including Ygender, Transgender Victoria, Seahorse and FTMShed. Our goal is to better understand the transgender experience, and celebrate the diversity of transgender journeys. On a day where we remember those that have been murdered and violently assaulted, we will also show that being trans is a positive experience for many people.

After the broadcast, the show will be podcast and available on the JOY web site. During the show we will introduce you to a variety of information. Here are some links you can access to help you learn more.
