People have gathered in Bendigo for a candlelight vigil to honour Transgender Day of Remembrance.
The international event on November 20 honours those who have lost their lives to transphobia, discrimination, and violence.
The group lit candles and walked silently around Lake Weeroona on Wednesday night.
Data from the National LGBTI Health Alliance shows transgender adults are almost 11 times more likely than the general population to attempt suicide, with 35 per cent having made an attempt in their lifetime.
Transgender and gender diverse people are nearly five times as likely to experience depression and almost three times as likely to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
The candlelight vigil signalled the end of Transgender Awareness Week 2019.
