Today is the International Transgender Day of Visibility. This event celebrates transgender people and their contributions to society. It is also a time for raising awareness about the discrimination transgender people continue to face today
We know that transgender people often face discrimination and prejudice in society. We know that transphobia can make visibility feel like vulnerability. As we celebrate transgender people, we appreciate the courage it can take to live openly and authentically; we also appreciate that it is important to acknowledge the cautions that need to be taken to survive. To the transgender people amongst us and all the members of our community, we would like to say that we value you and let us all continue supporting each other.
Happy International Transgender Day of Visibility!
