International Day of Transgender Visibility – March 31

The International Transgender Day of Visibility began in 2009 when Trans, gender-diverse, and Two-Spirit people recognized the need to celebrate Trans individuals and communities and their contributions to culture and society. This day is marked as a celebration, in contrast to the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which memorializes those who have lost their lives to anti-trans violence.

Dr. Evan Taylor, an assistant professor in the School of Social Work and Human Services at UFV, explains how the day underlines the need to acknowledge and celebrate the existence of Trans people.
