International Transgender Day of Visibility

31/03/2016

Dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.

The holiday was founded by Michigan-based transgender activist Rachel Crandall in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of LGBT holidays celebrating transgender people, citing the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centered holiday was the Transgender Day of Remembrance which mourned the loss of transgender people to hate crimes, but did not acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community.
