Today is International Transgender Day of VisibilityOnline Only, Top Highlights, Section 4A Monday, March 31st, 2014
Today, March 31, is International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV), a day dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.
Rachel Crandall, the head of Transgender Michigan, created in TDoV in 2010 to celebrate the trans community in a positive light.
According to transstudent.org, “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! ”
Rachel Crandall posted on the TDoV Facebook page, “It is so rewarding to see so many people celebrating The International Transgender Day of Visibility. It was only 4 years ago that we created it. Wait until next year: The five year celebration will be huge. We will take a rest starting tomorrow and then start planning again.”
