International Transgender Day of Visibility

TRANS IMAGEExecutive Director of Transgender Michigan, Rachel Crandall, started the International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV) in 2009 when she noticed that the major holidays honoring trans identities were all centered around remembrance and calling out injustice. She wanted a day where transgender people could be proud of who they are and be out and be visible.

After six years, the holiday has changed and grown significantly and is celebrated internationally in countries like Russia, Brazil and France. Through outreach and education, TDoV has influenced policy changes, broadened acceptance of the transgender community and changed hearts and minds.
