The monument was in Manchester’s Sackville Gardens, and unfortunately during Manchester Pride, some uncivilized people mistook it for an open-air bathroom.

The Trans Memorial – as reported by the PinkNews website – caught fire on the night of August 29, as Pride celebrations were winding down.

Sparkle – The National Transgender Charity – regarding what happened to the memorial, is speculating on the possibility of replacing it with a “lasting and resilient memorial that reflects the rich diversity of trans, non-binary and gender expansive communities.”
