The International Transgender Day of Visibility

2018 marks the 9th Annual International Transgender Day of Visibility, created by transgender advocate Rachel Crandall. This day, which is observed every year on March 31, is intended to raise awareness about transgender people, bring attention to the discrimination and violence trans people face – but also to celebrate our successes. The day is a time to celebrate transgender people around the globe and the courage it takes to live openly and authentically, while also raising awareness around the discrimination trans people still face.
