Every March 31st, the trans community and allies come together to observe #TransDayOfVisibility (TDOV). Today is about celebrating trans individuals, their achievements, and the hard-earned progress that has been made towards true equity for the trans community. Beyond that, though, TDOV is about renewing our commitment to educate ourselves on trans issues and to raise our voices against transphobia in all its forms. Whether you’re a trans person looking for support during this difficult time or looking to act in allyship to support the trans people in your life, we’ve got something to help.
