TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
Tuesday, November 20, 2019
6:30 - 7:30 pm
Andrews Park Amphitheater
479 N Webster Avenue, Norman
Tuesday, November 20th is the 2018 Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), which memorializes trans individuals who have died because of transphobia and acts of violence against the trans community. TDOR was inspired by the vigil held for Rita Hester, a trans woman from Allston, MA, who was murdered in 1998.
This event is the result of a partnership between PFLAG Norman, Norman Pride, and the Cleveland County Democratic Party. Our featured speaker will be Dan Dukes. Other speakers to be announced. We will close the evening with a vigil and reading of the list of victims in 2018.
NORMAN HOLIDAY PARADE
Saturday, December 8
The Norman Holiday Parade theme this year is "Merry and Bright in Lights"! And the start time is moved back to 6:00 pm to ensure it's dark enough for floats with lights to be enjoyed more!
We need more volunteers to help build our float! Lux Bhakta has agreed to be our "creative coordinator" again, so please let us know if you'd like to help! She will need help collecting and creating the various components of the float and MANY hands the day of the parade to assemble it on the trailer. Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to help!
Then, of course, we need many Democrats to walk with our float, hand out candy, and offer warm holiday greetings to those along the route!
