Trans Day of Visibility

March 31st marks Trans Day of Visibility – a day dedicated to both uplifting trans and gender non-conforming folks’ accomplishments, and bringing awareness to the systemic barriers trans/GNC people still face. We know that visibility does not keep trans and gender non-conforming people safe. If anything, it is those who are most visible, especially trans feminine people of color, who are often most at risk of institutional and interpersonal violence. And, we know that if we don’t make visible our barriers and our accomplishments, others will define – and often mis define – them for us. 

Today we celebrate trans and GNC communities, and recommit to recognizing trans leadership and fighting for trans safety.
