Transgender Day of Rememberance

Morgan Kelly

International Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to honor people who identify as transgender who have died in the past year.

This year Iowa State’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Ally Alliance community is honoring those whose lives have been lost due to anti-transgender violence with a series of events throughout Nov. 20.

Gamma Rho Lambda is having an interactive art piece to raise awareness about cisgender privilege, or those who identify with and who are comfortable expressing their gender based on their physical sex, and the advantages they have. It will be outside the Parks Library in the quad from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Gamma Rho Lambda will also be selling Genderbread cookies to decorate and raise awareness on the intricacies of gender expression and identification.

Each activity costs $1, and the funds will be donated to a local charity aimed on transgender support.

Gamma Rho Lambda, in partnership with the Multicultural Greek Council, will host a Trans 101 workshop in the Sun Room in the Memorial Union from 7 to 8:30 pm. The workshop aims to expand the understanding and impact of gender for individuals, organizations and groups.

The pair will also sponsor a memorial from 8:30 to 9 pm in the Sun Room as well.
