Celebrate and Support Trans Day of Visibility on March 31st

By Rise
28 March 2023
This year on March 31st, we celebrate International Trans Day of Visibility (TDOV). TDOV is an annual global event that raises awareness and pride in trans and gender diverse communities.

#BeSeen emphasises the importance of visibility and recognition for trans and gender diverse individuals. For many gender diverse people, a lack of representation, role models, and community can be isolating and make it difficult to feel proud in their identities.

For a community that is too often underrepresented, TDOV is about reclaiming space and being visible on your own terms.

On this day, we encourage everyone to join the celebration by listening and learning, sharing stories and starting conversations. This is a day of pride and celebration for gender diverse identities, achievements, and community.
