In Memory of Rita


A somber 5-minute musical reflection on the event that inspired the annual international Transgender Day of Remembrance, the candlelight vigil for murdered transsexual Rita Hester. This heartfelt work is based on a song written by Nancy Nangeroni, and was produced by Gordene MacKenzie with Nancy. It includes footage from the actual candlelight vigil for Rita Hester, as well as additional footage shot by Gordene and Nancy. It also includes, at the beginning and end, the voices of Rita’s mom and brother, recorded on GenderTalk radio.   Length: 4:45
