What is the Transgender Day of Visibility?
TDoV 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 to be empowered and get the recognition we deserve!
When is TDoV?
TDoV is on March 31st every year!
Where is TDoV?
Everywhere! We encourage you to create panels, talk to friends, and spread knowledge about the trans community no matter where you are! You can also join the official Facebook event and use hashtag #tdov and #TDoV2015 on social media.
In 2014, the holiday was observed by activists across the world — including in Ireland and in Scotland.
