International Transgender Support day NOV 20th

Fitness++ supports the LGBTI community and will observe the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). It’s a day where we honour the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

This week is Transgender Awareness Week and aims to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people and address the issues these communities face.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in 1998 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a trans woman, columnist, and activist,to memorialise the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts.
