The event will include a special service with Rev. Carol-Anne Chapman, followed by a community gathering hosted by Muskoka Pride.

The event will include screening the names of 375 trans and gender-diverse people who were victims of transphobic violence between October 1st 2020and September 30th 2021.

Since 2008 - when records started being kept, a total of 4,042 deathshave been reported worldwide.
