Participants in Queens Pride House’s Transgender Day of Remembrance.

The Queens Pride House, on November 21, held an event to commemorate the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which provided members of the transgender community and allies with an opportunity to discuss the causes of violence against transgender people as well as possible ways to address such violence. The discussion was facilitated by Pauline Park, president of the Pride House board of directors and its acting executive director. The event was supported with funding from the North Star Fund as part of the Popular Resistance & Non-Violent Action (PRANA) Project and was co-sponsored by the New York Association for Gender Rights Advocacy (NYAGRA) and Q-Wave, an organization for lesbian, bisexual, and queer women and transgender and gender-variant people of Asian descent in New York City.
