Transgender Day of Remembrance

International Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th, 1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999.

World AIDS Day
Dec 1 all-day
World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

Over 101,000 people are living with HIV in the UK. Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people who have the virus. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.

Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. Despite this, each year in the UK around 6,000 people are diagnosed with HIV, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with the condition.

World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

Harvey Milk Day
May 22 all-day
Harvey Milk Day @ FHMP

“It takes no compromise to give people their rights…it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.” – Harvey Milk

In 1973, Harvey Milk declared he was going to run for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He lost the election but it didn’t prevent him from trying to run for public office again. In 1975, he tried to run again for the same seat and lost again – although this time his loss was by a much slimmer margin. However, he gained valuable experience from his political run and had become somewhat of a political force in the gay community.

In 1977, Harvey Milk ran again and this time, he won a seat on the San Francisco City-County Board. On January 9, 1978, he was inaugurated and became not only San Francisco’s first openly gay officer but also the first openly gay individual to be elected to public office in the U.S.

“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.” – Harvey Milk

1978 Assassination

Harvey understood that the LGBT community was part of something larger, and creating something special here will inspire others to carry on the global movement for peace and social justice.” – Cleve Jones
