International Transgender Day of Visibility

MARCH 30, 2022 -- International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) occurs every year on March 31st. This day is dedicated to celebrating transgender people, their contributions to society and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.

The day was founded by US transgender activist Rachel Crandall of Michigan in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of recognition of transgender people, and citing the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centred day was the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which mourns the murders of transgender people, but does not acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community.
