Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is a day of reverence observed every year on November 20th. It’s an opportunity for the community to come together to honor those we’ve lost in the trans and gender non-conforming community through the year as well as to celebrate our resilience and showcase our solidarity and the strength we possess when we come together.

Join us for the 8th annual Ventura County Transgender Day of Remembrance event, held this year on Wednesday, November 16th from 6-8pm at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center.

You can also purchase more tickets to support the event and get an additional ticket for every support service table you visit. 50% of the ticket purchase price will go to the artist, so you’re supporting two great causes.
