Trans Day of Visibility: Home

March 31 is the International Transgender Day of Visibility.

Each year on March 31, the world observes A multiracial group of people standing as though at a protest, smilling. The woman in front has a microphone. Several people have signs saying Trans Day of Visibility. Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) to raise awareness about transgender people. It is a day to celebrate the lives and contributions of trans people, while also drawing attention to the poverty, discrimination, and violence the community faces.

International TDOV was created in 2010 by trans advocate Rachel Crandall. Crandall, the head of Transgender Michigan, created TDOV in response to the overwhelming majority of media stories about transgender people being focused on violence. She hoped to create a day where people could re-focus on celebrating the lives of transgender people, empowering them to live authentically, while still acknowledging that due to discrimination, not every trans person can or wants to be visible.
