• International Transgender Day of Visibility

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to ALL on Fri Mar 31 12:20:31 2023
    Hello Everybody,

    Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility



    The International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is an annual day
    of recognition, celebrated around the world on March 31st, which is
    dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments and victories of
    transgender and gender-expansive people, while simultaneously raising
    awareness of the work that is still needed to combat discrimination
    and violence.

    TDOV was founded in 2009 by US-based transgender activist Rachel
    Crandall, a licensed psychotherapist and the Executive Director of
    Transgender Michigan, both in reaction to the lack of LGBTQ+ days of recognition for the successes achieved by trans people, as well as the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centered day of
    recognition was the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). TDOV is a much-needed day of empowerment, celebrating the lives and achievements
    of our transgender and gender-expansive loved ones.

    As trans allies, we need always hold space for our trans loved ones,
    and recognize their many accomplishments. #TDOV is only one day out
    of 365 that gives allies the chance to uplift and celebrate our trans
    loved ones.
