The Suffolk County Green Party continues its support of Transgender Day Of Remembrance (TDOR). TDOR is a worldwide event held every November to raise awareness about discrimination, violence, and murder directed against transgender (living as or expressing a gender other than the one expected at birth), intersex (biologically in-between or outside male and female), and gender-nonconforming (acting in any way contrary to gender stereotypes) people , to commemorate the lives of transgender, intersex and gender-nonconforming people around the world who’ve been killed due to this kind of discrimination and violence within the past year, and showing transgender/intersex/gender-nonconforming people and allies’ commitment toward making a more safe, understanding and accepting world.
The Green Party believes in supporting the safety, dignity and equality of all people, regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Our diversity platform includes LGBTIQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer/Questioning, Asexual, and those not identified with any of these letters) people. We oppose discrimination and violence, including any directed against a person’s expressed or perceived gender or sexuality. In keeping with our Pillars of social/economic justice, grassroots democracy, ecological wisdom and and peace/nonviolence, the Green Party of Suffolk supports Transgender Day Of Remembrance, both as an event and in its local observances.
