The month of November is observed globally as Transgender Awareness Month with Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) being held November 20, which memorialises victims of transphobic violence. Transgender Awareness Month was marked across Dublin with the trans flag being raised along the quays and outside City Hall. Speaking of the show of solidarity around Dublin city, CEO of TENI Éirénne Carroll said: “TENI has been so excited to see the trans flag go up across Dublin, we’re thankful for the partnership with Dublin Pride, Dublin City Council and Dublin City Parks to get them raised. “The trans flags flying this week are important for many reasons, from what we know it’s the first time Dublin has raised trans flags for Transgender Awareness Week, and that is monumental in recognising trans people in the city and across Ireland. “It’s also important because unfortunately this year we saw 350 trans and gender diverse people murdered globally, the highest number in years. “The flags are a sign of solidarity by the city. It shows the city will continue to advocate for trans rights and celebrate our resilient and beautiful community, even in a time when we cannot physically gather to remember and celebrate.”
