Two events are scheduled in the Twin Ports to mark the 19th annual International Transgender Day of Remembrance on Monday.

A Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. Monday at the corner of Lake Avenue and Superior Street in Duluth.

A viewing party for the film “A Queer and Pleasant Danger,” followed by a panel discussion, is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Monday in room 2125 in the Holden Fine Arts Building at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

The day honors and memorializes people who have died due to anti-transgender hate, violence and brutality, and is intended to raise awareness about violence and hate crimes against transgender and gender nonconforming people. So far this year, 25 people have been killed in the United States due to identifying as transgender, organizers said - but they noted that people’s gender can be misidentified in media reports, making it difficult to track every death.
