The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, is observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.
Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in 1999 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a transgender woman, to memorialize the murder of transgender woman Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. Since its inception, TDoR has been held annually on November 20, and it has slowly evolved from the web-based project started by Smith into an international day of action. In 2010, TDoR was observed in over 185 cities throughout more than 20 countries.

Time flies, our center located in Station Lane, Whampoa had been opened for more than 11 months. We had made an agreement when receiving the property with the donor to hand it back to the landlord at the expiration of the tenancy in September 2018. On 9th September, we have already moved to a smaller office in San Po Kong. Due to the application of funding last year not going smoothly. Also, an increase in deploying human resources into the center operation, the fundraising event cannot be held as scheduled. As a result, we are currently lacking funds and basically running the center without staffs but volunteers. Therefore, the new center is not going to open often. If you want to visit us, please kindly make an early appointment.
The new Center address and contact information are listed below:
Address: Room 42, 11/F, Lee Ka Industrial Building, 8 Ng Fong Street, San Po Kong
How to get here: Approx. 7 minutes walk from Diamond Hill MTR Station Exit A2/Approx. 5 minutes walk from Sze Mei Street Bus Terminus
* Visitors arrive at 11F, please press 042 on door-phone and wait for a response. After that, please turn right, walk straight to the end, and our room is located right at the left-hand side.
Telephone no.：+852-8203-2100 (if no one is answering, please leave your message)

Earlier studies have consistently documented sexual orientation disparities in mental health, with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals being at greater risk of poor mental health than cisgender heterosexual individuals. The Chinese University of Hong Kong The Chinese University of Hong Kong conducted research that studies the disparities in mental health of LGBT individuals (incl. lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals) and cisgender heterosexual individuals in 2017 with an aim to examine mental health of LGBT individuals in Hong Kong and identify protective and risk factors that contribute to their mental health outcomes.
