The Transgender Memorial Garden of St. Louis is the project of the Metro Trans Umbrella Group of St. Louis. It is the second of its kind in the world (the first is in Manchester, England) and the first in the United States.

Redbud trees form a line along the edge of the garden facing Vandeventer.  Hackberry trees are planted in a grid throughout the lot. Native Missouri wildflowers and plants make up the butterfly garden at the tip.

Each element of the garden was designed with functionality, beauty and symbolism in mind.  Click on the photos and read the captions for more information.
