More than 300 Trans Pride flags are on display at the Salt Lake City and County Building this week for Trans Awareness Week, and a virtual memorial is planned for Friday November 20 at 6 p.m.
Each flag represents a trans person lost to violence in the last year, and the display includes the names of those we've lost. The flags will be on display this week for those who wish to pay their respects.
While we are unable to gather in person this year due to COVID-19, there are two virtual events planned for Friday to bring our community together and honor our dead.
Stories of Trans Resilience begins at 1 p.m. Visit the linked event page for more details or to watch the livestream.
