Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) 2020

The Network on this special day of Remembrance of Trans (including Non-Binary) lives cruelly taken and destroyed across the world, often through the most vicious forms of torture and mental cruelty. We ask all sections of society in the UK, including Dorset & the South Coast, and across the world to reflect on this totally unacceptable phenomenon caused by the Transphobic, intolerant and vicious minded. For those not aware of TDOR, its significance and purpose, please visit

We on this occasion also wish to remind all those reading this page about the phenomenon of Trans communities members who for lack of humanity and meaningful support (including still all too often by actual public service organisations such as some NHS Trusts, and NHS General Practice healthcare professionals) end up attempting to take, or actually taking their lives.

On this special, poignant day, the Network’s Chairperson, Fr John Hyde, will be lighting candles and holding prayers for all of the lives of Trans communities, sadly often brutally lost during the past year.

In our Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole area, the Network is very pleased to work closely with our friends at Communi-T, Trans communities group. For more on their important, local-based support and servives please visit their website —

We also commend the valuable support and services of organisations such as Chrysalis (, and Trans communities supporting organisations such as Space Youth Project (Dorset), and Breakout Youth (Hampshire) and Mind Out at Dorset Mind.
