DC Anti-Violence Project

DC Anti-Violence Project Formerly known as GLOV, DC Anti Violence Project works to address all forms of violence against the LGBT community. The primary mission of the DC Anti-Violence Project (DCAVP) is to work to reduce violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and transgender (LGBT ) individuals (and those perceived as LGBT ) through community outreach, education, and monitoring cases to ensure that the rights and dignity of LGBT victims are respected and protected.

DCAVP also seeks to assist victims of anti-LGBT violence by advocating on their behalf, encouraging reporting, and providing a community of support. For more information, visit www.dcavp.org or e-mail infoglovdc.org.

Mission: We are dedicated to eradicating violence against and within the LGBTQ+ community, engaging creatively with solutions through advocacy, community organizing, and survivor support. The DC Anti-Violence Project is a grassroots, volunteer-led project of the DC Center for the LGBT community.

How actor Jaysen Wright would spend a perfect day in D.C.

"After the show, I’d go out with some of the cast to pregame at Number Nine. Another thing that I miss right now as a gay person is really safe spaces for queer people — I didn’t know what D.C. pride meant to me until I couldn’t have it anymore. Then, even though Town Danceboutique is closed, it would still be open in my dream world and I would end the night there. D.C. is a really transitory city — people come and they go — so all of the friends from all over the country who have left would be there. It would be great to just get together and dance."

The D.C. native appears in the new Studio Theatre-produced audio play “I Hate It Here.”

What is Transgender Day of Remembrance?

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester’s death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
