In case there was any confusion about precisely where to meet and when, this memo clears it up:
Concerning the gathering for Transgender Day of Remembrance, I've seen several conflicting times. However, the latest, and probably most accurate is from David Massey, the Secretary/Treasurer of the local PFLAG chapter and Spectrum Cafe:
"This coming Friday, Nov. 20, marks the 11th annual "International Transgender Day of Remembrance" -- a time to memorialize persons who have been killed as a result of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.
In Knoxville -- thanks to the leadership of an enterprising U.T. student -- there is an opportunity for folks to gather, remember, learn and demonstrate their support for individuals who dare to live and present themselves as who they truly are.
Gather at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at the corner of Kingston Pike and Concord Street, near the UT campus. You can park at the Tennessee Valley UU Church, 2931 Kingston Pike, just a short distance west of the Concord/Kingston Pike intersection. Feel free to bring signs. Sign-making materials will be available. This event will last until 6:30; come for the whole time or just for a few moments.

Before heading out to eat... or to a movie... please come show your support for the courageous individuals who choose to be themselves and for those who have died at the hands of hate and prejudice.
