Gwendolyn Ann Smith started Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) as a web project after the Nov. 28, 1998 killing of Rita Hester in Allston, MA. It resulted in a candlelight vigil held in San Francisco in 1999 to honor her, and others like her, after they died violently for being who they were. TDOR has been repeated every year since and now is being observed in over 200 cities and 20 countries around the world.
