The Hague Transgender Remembrance Day on 20 November 2019 will take place in the COC Café, Scheveningseveer 7, 2514HB The Hague.

Given the subject matter, the ceremony will have a modest character.

At 18:30 there is an opportunity to enjoy a modest dinner together, which also includes a vegetarian menu. This takes place in a shielded part at the back of the cafe. Walk-in for people who do not eat along is from 19:30. The commemoration part will take place at 20:00. A few short words will be spoken, after which the list of names of transgender people killed by violence will be read out this year. There will be a two-minute silence at the end.
