International Trans Day of Visibility

By Charlotte Robinson, March 29, 2021

International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event occurring on March 31st dedicated to celebrating transgender people & raising awareness of the discrimination faced by our transgender community globally as well as a celebration of their contributions to society. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) & the National LGBTQ Task Force will co-host a virtual panel on Wednesday March 31st at 6P EST to mark this day entitled “Fierce, Fabulous & Fighting for Our Lives: A Conversation with Transgender & Non-Binary Young People.” The panelists will included Actor/Producer Josie Totah, LGBTQ Reporter at 19th News Kate Sosin, Author, Activist, Life Coach & the 1st trans athlete on an NCAA D1 men’s team Schuyler Bailar, HRC Youth Ambassador and DJ Nico Craig, HRC Youth Ambassador & TikTok Influencer Ve’ondre Mitchell & Web Developer & Artivist Lala Shanks. Cathy Renna, National LGBTQ Task Force Communications Director stated, “With the pervasive attacks on trans youth happening across the nation & in the media, we wanted to give space to trans & non-binary youth, who are tired of being talked about & should be listened to, telling their stories & sharing their experiences.” Arkansas & Tennessee have become latest states to pass anti-trans legislation & there are a record number of bills targeting transgender people pending in state legislatures across this country with a significant number of these bills targeting our trans youth. This issue must be addressed so we can all move forward to a more humane & compassionate world. To RSVP this event email madeleine.roberts@hrc.org for instructions on accessing the livestream.
