International Day of Transgender Visibility (TDoV)
International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV) is celebrated annually on March 31st to commemorate transgender lived experiences and bring awareness of discrimination faced by transgender folks.
Days such as TDoV are crucial in opening the discussion around trans* rights, since many people still face discrimination and may not fully be comfortable in the way they express their gender outwardly. From collective and individual victories, hardships, and social change, TDoV is an important date to recognize what has come, as well as what there is to look forward to in terms of gender equity.
To celebrate and uplift the voices of our trans authors and highlight their lived experiences, today and every day, please enjoy this curated list of resources that would be a fantastic addition to any course syllabus, including programs on education, health, gender and women’s studies, political science, sociology, law and more:Trans Youth Stories: An Intergenerational Dialogue after the "Trans Tipping Point"
