International Transgender Day of Visibility is March 31

Every year on March 31, we join organizations and individuals worldwide to observe International Transgender Day of Visibility. Led by GLADD, a non-profit organization focused on LGBTQ advocacy and cultural change, this day raises awareness about transgender people, celebrates the lives and contributions of trans people, and also draws attention to the poverty, discrimination, and violence the community faces.

Here’s how you can take part in International Transgender Day of Visibility:
