The Opening Ceremony is one of the beginning events that kicks off the week, as we gather at Transcending The Gender Box, in the parking lot. It is an event that helps recognize our five days of events, that brings Pride, Awareness, Remembrance, Empowerment, Celebration, and Support to the Transgender Community and Allies. It incorporates ritual segments from the Native American culture as we celebrate the diversity that exist in our community. This will also include a drumming circle; there will be some drums available, but you are encouraged to bring your own drum, if you own one. The opening ceremony will also include the Smudging Ceremony, which is a way to create a cleansing smoke bath that is used to purify the body, aura, energy, ceremonial/ritual space or any other space and personal articles. Smudging is performed to remove negative energy as well as for centering and healing. Our bodies and environments are not only physical but vibrate with invisible, silent energy.
The Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day, which the Transgender Community stands with the support of our allies and raises awareness against the grotesque acts of violence brought upon Trans-identified individuals whose life has been cut short through such haneous acts of violence. The vigil is held on or around November 20th each year, depending upon individual location.
Will you stand with us this year and say enough is enough! Together we can make a difference.
This is the orginal day that TransPride week has been built around, as we remember those who boldly lived as their authentic selves. We carry their voices with us, as we continue to fight for justice and equality.
