Transgender Day of Remembrance, 2019

This year, 331 transgender people have been killed through often violent acts that were fueled by the ignorance and bigotry that is Transphobia. Last year, that number was 269. We like to think that the world is becoming or has become more understanding, compassionate, and accepting of the LGBTQ community, but those numbers say something very different.

That was the message on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at Barrie City Hall when representatives of the transgender community met with Mayor Jeff Lehman and several dozen concerned citizens to raise a flag intended to inspire acceptance for all transgender people within our community.

Our crew at the OCANetwork, also known as Five Points Media, stand as allies to the LGBTQ community, and as supporters of equal rights for all people.

We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a locally-focused truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and Barrie-based charities.
