About the event

Each year Sparkle hosts the TDOR Service in Manchester within Sackville Gardens. The Sparkle team are currently busy planning the service and organising the event over the coming weeks. We will update the event in due course, below you can find out what we did for our last remembrance event.

Last year we gathered together on Sunday 19th November to remember those who had lost their lives to intolerance and transphobic violence in 2017, and to say, “You were known to us”. We had key speakers, musicians and community leaders join us for the ceremony. The winners of the Vocal Group category of this year’s Sparkle Music Awards, T Party London, joined us for rousing versions of ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘We 2 R 1’. Following the service, our guests left the marquee by candlelight to gather around the National Trans Memorial and read the names of those victim to hatred this year.
