Description

Transgender Day of Remembrance – Fundraiser and Panel with Peter Tatchel

The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), which occurs annually on November 20, is a day to remember those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.

To mark this event, Barclays Spectrum, the colleague led LGBT network of Barclays, is hosting an evening in support of Mermaids UK, a charity that supports young people suffering from gender identity issues and their families.

The event will consist of a reception followed by a panel event with esteemed guests as well as Peter Tatchel, a well-known champion of LGBT inclusion.

We are expecting a high attendance so please reserve your ticket today to avoid disappointment.

Timings: 18:00 for registration and refreshments, 18:30 short film & panel, close by 21:00.

For any questions please email Sam Williams or Billy Kamberis

While admission is free, please take a moment to make a donation to Mermaids. This would be gratefully received.

Here is a breakdown of what this would mean to Mermaids:

  • £180 pays for a family of two to attend a weekend residential meeting.

  • £150 pays for the Helpline training and expenses that a new volunteer needs to be able to do to qualify.

  • £600 subsidises a school for half a day of training.

Any funds not allocated specifically go towards the support services of Mermaids, including to fund the Helpline and email service which is manned 9am until 9pm, to run local groups throughout the country, to pay for materials and expenses, to run weekend residential meetings organised by Mermaids and to supply training into schools, social services, the NHS and other professional organisations.
