Event Details

On Wednesday, November 20th, the Pride Centre will be honouring the lives of transgender and two-spirit individuals who were lost this past year to transphobic violence.

Similar to previous years, the event will be broken up into three parts: the opening ceremony, the walk, and the main ceremony with memorial. The event will begin at CEMI (C201) and attendees will be guided through a smudge and prayer. Participants will then join in a guided walk through campus that will end in the 2nd floor lounge of Wyckham House.

This will be a CLOSED Mount Royal event. We ask that external media respect this MRU community-focused ceremony and instead attend the Calgary-wide event. MRU Internal media are welcome to attend. Names will not be said aloud but will be set up in the 2nd Floor Gallery for individual perusal and reflection.

To attend a ceremony with a reading of the names, please visit the city-wide event with Calgary Outlink.
