Transgender Day of Visibility 2022
Thursday, March 31, 2022
Visibility is great, but human rights, freedom and equality are better.
Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV) was founded by Transgender Rights Activist Rachel Crandall-Crocker in 2009. TDoV is an annual international event acknowledged on March 31 that recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of transgender and gender non-conforming people. This day is also meant to bring awareness to the myriad burdens and discrimination that the transgender and gender non-conforming communities experience.
This year, the signing of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill (HB1557) is a stark reminder of the continued threats to the safety and wellbeing of trans and gender non-conforming communities across the U.S. When any human rights are under attack, all human rights are under attack, and these attacks often disproportionately effect members of already marginalized communities.
It’s important that we educate ourselves on TDoV and the LGBTQ+ community so that we are able to celebrate, affirm, empower and accept all of our trans and gender non-conforming community members.
