Participate In Local St. Petersburg, Florida Activities

This wonderful activity is being hosted in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida. If you are looking for things to do with your family, then this is the perfect opportunity for you!

Transgender Day of Remembrance was started by transgender activist Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a way to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil celebrated the lives of all transgender people who lost their lives to violence that year. The Transgender Day of Remembrance has grown into an annual nationwide memorial for the transgender community. 

Mayoral Proclamation to be read at 7 PM. Candles will be provided, but please bring your own if possible.

When you go to this activity with your family, make sure you tell the hosts that you heard about it on Wabamm!
