Transgender Awareness Week, observed November 13 to November 19, where people and organizations around the world help raise the visibility of transgender people and address issues members of the community face. The week ends with Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) on November 20th, which memorializes victims of transphobic violence.

Introducing Perth County’s Trans Pride Week

To coincide with Trans Awareness Week and TDOR, Stratford-Perth Pride is planning on holding the first annual  Trans Pride Week from November 13 – 20, 2022. Think Pride Month but trans-focused. The goal is to hold events that increase awareness, knowledge and acceptance of the trans community (including non-binary folks) in Perth County. Possible events may include a trans flag raising(s), educational workshops, panel discussions, a trans movie night, a drag show, candle vigil for ToDR and more – the goal is to have events across Perth County (not just in Stratford). 

Join our Trans Pride Week Committee

We’re looking for interested community members and organizations to join our Trans Pride Week Committee. These volunteers will help plan and implement Perth County’s first Trans Pride Week. Although we welcome any interested volunteers, we would love to ensure trans and non-binary voices are represented on our committee – after all you can’t have Trans Pride without trans people.
