Transgender Day of Visibility Globally

By Charlotte Robinson, March 28, 2024

International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) was founded in 2009 by Rachel Crandall-Crocker & is held annually on March 31st celebrating transgender & non-binary people globally living openly & authentically while raising awareness around the discrimination & violence they still face. Kelley Robinson, HRC President stated, “Every year, we set aside a moment in time to celebrate transgender & non-binary people in all their resilience & ferocity. But the truth is they deserve more than a day. Transgender & non-binary people are our family & friends, our colleagues & our loved ones & above all, they’re people who deserve full lived & legal equality. On the same day we celebrate the power & visibility of transgender & non-binary people, we must also acknowledge an exceedingly dangerous moment: legislators around the country seemingly competing to be the cruelest to our trans siblings. On this Transgender Day of Visibility, we all must recommit ourselves to fighting against those seeking to upend their lives & marginalize them for being their truest selves.” In Boston The Theater Offensive is celebrating their first Trans Day of Visibility Fellowship Brunch on Sunday March 31th at Rochambeau 900 Boylston Street in Boston from 12P to 3P. Giselle Byrd, Theater Offensive Executive Director stated, “This year, Trans Day of Visibility happens to fall on the same day as Easter. On a day surrounded by the theme of resurrection, we have decided to take this opportunity to resurrect the names of our siblings lost due to the senseless epidemic of violence towards trans folks, while simultaneously celebrating the joy of our lived experience & the resilience we carry to innovate movements & share our artistry.”
