Why is Transgender Day of Remembrance important to our community?
Beck Saunders â€“ "I have some friends who are transgender, so anything that brings more attention to it is good. It’s not talked about much in the gay and lesbian community."
Mavis May â€“ "If it makes people feel better, a vigil is an important thing to do."
John Grissom â€“ "It educates us and makes us aware of people’s thoughts and feelings and concerns."
Brad Murdock â€“ "It breaks down stereotypes people have of transgenders."
Michelle Brummond â€“ "It gives you a better awareness of the diversity of people."
