For many gender diverse people, a lack of representation, role models, and community can be isolating and make it difficult to feel proud in our identities.
Trans Day of Visibility is a day of pride and celebration for gender diverse identity, achievements, and community. For a community that is too often underrepresented, TDOV is about reclaiming space and being visible on our terms.
Trans Day of Visibility was started by activist Rachel Crandall in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of recognition of trans people, noting that the only well known gender diversity centered day was the Trans Day of Remembrance, a day of mourning.
TDOV was created as a day to acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community. International Transgender Day of Visibility has been held on March 31 ever since!
