Trans Day of Remembrance
Sunday is the Trans Day of Remembrance, which commemorates those who have died as a result of hatred and violence towards transgendered persons. To mark the occasion, The Well, an organization that provides support for members of Hamilton's LGBTQ community, has organized an event to raise awareness about transphobia.
Our Allies Speak Out Against Trans Violence takes place at Homegrown Hamilton (27 King William St.) on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, but organizers invite attendees to bring non-perishable food items to donate to The Well's food pantry program.
Daniel Romano and the Trilliums
Over a seven-year career, Welland-bred Attack in Black made a slow but marked transition from purveying searing punk rock to country-tinged folk. Lead singer Daniel Romano has taken the shift further, culminating with his most recent solo release, the Polaris Prize-nominated album Sleep Beneath the Willow.
He plays the Casbah (306 King St. W) on Sunday night. Tickets cost $10 in advance — available at the venue available online at Casbahlounge.ca — or $12 at admission. Doors are 8 p.m.
The Bulldogs face AHL North Division adversaries the Lake Erie Monsters at home on Sunday.
The game at Copps Coliseum (101 York Blvd.) kicks off at 4 p.m. Advance tickets range from $20.40 to $33, available at Ticketmaster.ca.
