O GRIT - Grupo de Reflexão e Intervenção sobre Transexualidade da Associação ILGA Portugal, em colaboração com a rede ex aequo - associação de jovens lésbicas, gays, bissexuais, transgéneros e simpatizantes, apresenta nos próximos dias 17, 18 e 19 de Novembro, no Centro LGBT (Rua de S. Lázaro, 88, Lisboa), o ciclo "Dias da Memória Trans".

O International Transgender Day of Remembrance é assinalado todos os anos em Novembro, em homenagem a Rita Hester, mulher transgénero assassinada em 28 de Novembro de 1998 nos EUA, e em memória de todos aqueles que perdem a vida, ano após ano, vítimas do ódio e da transfobia.

Porque elas e eles também eram pessoas, relembramos as suas mortes com a projeção de dois filmes de temática Trans, e encerramos o ciclo com uma tertúlia a partir de diferentes testemunhos e experiências de vida - afirmando que sim!, somos todos Pessoas!
