Trans Visibility Resources - UPDATED 2023

March 31st, 2023

“Transgender Day Of Visibility is a day to show your support for the trans community. It aims to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community. Unlike Transgender Day of Remembrance, this is not a day for mourning: this is a day of empowerment and getting the recognition we deserve!” (, 2021).
