Each year on March 31, the Human Rights Campaign honors International Transgender Day of Visibility, a time to celebrate transgender and non-binary people around the globe and acknowledge the courage it takes to live openly and authentically. HRC & other advocates also mark the day by raising awareness around discrimination and violence that trans people face.
HRC estimates that there are more than 2 million transgender people across the United States. We are parents, siblings and kids. We are your coworkers, your neighbors and your friends. We are 7-year-old children and 70-year-old grandparents. We are a diverse community, representing all racial and ethnic backgrounds as well as all faith traditions.
TDOV allows us all to honor the joy and resilience of transgender people everywhere. It allows the unique voices and identities of all trans people to be elevated and celebrated. It is through the power of human connection and understanding that we can create real change in the world.
