Transgender Day of Remembrance: What is TDoR?
"The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence" -

Sunday November 28: Elders Potluck Social: 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project invites you to an LGBT Elders Potluck Social. There will be a round table discussion on Being Single. If we're not single now, we were single at one time. As LGBT singles, what's good? What's bad? What's funny? What's sad? How is being single today different from when we first came out? Share your memories and stories - or maybe your plans as a single Elder! Who is an Elder? LGBT Elders are 50+, so feel free to bring along new Elders to this event at Spencer House Senior Centre, 5596 Morris Street, Halifax.

Tuesday, November 30: 7 - 9 PM: BlackOUT! Sexual Orientation, Gender identity, and Race in Nova Scotia Now
BlackOUT! brings together LGBT African Nova Scotians with Dr. Clemon George, an HIV/AIDS activist and educator, to discuss how heterosexism and racism affect LGBT people of African heritage. BlackOUT! explores the proposition: “In order to offset the impact of HIV in the Canadian African Diaspora communities, we need to address homo/transphobia in those communities as well as the lingering effects of racism in the LGBT community.”
Panelists: Dr. Clemon George, Elle Noir, Lorne Izzard, and Robert Wright. Moderator: Catherine Meade.
Room 303, 6136 University Ave. Student Union Building, Dalhousie University.
This event is presented by the Nova Scotia Advisory Commission on AIDS; Dalhousie University School of Health and Human Performance, Studdent Services, Peer Health, Black Student Advising Council; and NSRAP.
Reception to follow. Admission is FREE
AIDS Awareness Week November 24 - December 1, 2010

Sunday, December 12: 2 - 4 PM. Long Term Care and the LGBT Community. The Company House, 2202 Gottingen Street. Long-term care was the hottest issue at the first NSRAP Elders gathering at the Company House back in the spring of this year. This meeting will allow NSRAP to update the community about our ongoing work with Northwood, and our plans to extend the project to other facilities. We are particularly interested in hearing from the community, both LGBT elders and care-givers, about your interactions with elder-care. In your experience, what’s working—and what needs improving—in long-term care for the Nova Scotian elders you know and love? This event is open to anyone aged 19 and over. Admission is free.
