Trans+ Day of Visibility

Friday, March 31, 2023 marks the 14th annual International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV). The day aims to celebrate the resilience and success of transgender people and raise awareness of trans+ rights. TDOV was originally founded in 2009 by activist Rachel Crandall, who was inspired by the fact that there was no holiday in existence dedicated to honoring the achievements and contributions of transgender people. At the time, the only major transgender-centered commemoration was the Trans+ Day of Remembrance, which mourns the victims of hate crimes and violence.

Thanks to everyone who joined us this year on March 31st for our Trans+ Day of Visibility event! it was amazing to see our campus's support of trans+ students with over 125 people in attendance.
