Transgender Awareness Week is observed in November to educate people about transgender and gender non-conforming people and the issues associated with their transition or identity. The week ends with Transgender Day of Remembrance. The Transgender Day of Remembrance is observed annually on Nov. 20. TDOR was first coordinated in 1998 as a vigil to commemorate transgender individuals lost to violence during that year.
