Trans Awareness Week is a chance to celebrate the wonderful trans and gender diverse community. And it’s also the perfect, ideal time to educate ourselves and those around us about gender diversity, and the importance of being a trans ally. And of course, what being an ally even entails.
Every year, Trans Awareness Week finishes with the whole community observing Trans Day of Remembrance. It’s a chance to celebrate the trailblazers throughout history that have fought for trans rights, and honour the ones who have lost their lives due to violence and discrimination.
It’s important to note that this sort of violence still exists, and isn’t just an ugly footnote in history – and that’s exactly the reason why Trans Awareness Week is so, so important.
