International Transgender Day of Rememberance, 20 Nov 2015
In spite of the cold around 17 of us from Diamonds and from across the city gathered at Castle Mound around the latterns, glowsticks and fairy lights in a very moving vigil. We read the official TDoR list of those known to have died as a result of anti-transgender violence over the past year, and also remembered those who have died through suicide or silently in countries where transgender is never talked about. Let us hope and pray that there will be fewer names on the list in future years.
November Dining Club
On Saturday 7th November 2015, 11 Cambridge diamonds and 4 pandas gathered to have a candle lit dinner at the Plough and Fleece, Horningsea.
The food and veg were beautifully cooked and in large sufficient portion. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful.
All of us had a lovely time.
