GIFT holds an annual Orlando Transgender Day of Remembrance event.

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), which occurs annually on November 20, is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. Wikipedia
