What is the Transgender Day of Visibility?
International TDoV is an annual holiday celebrated around the world on March 31st. The day is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments and victories of transgender & gender non-conforming people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives. 

What is this year’s theme?
This year’s theme is “surviving, thriving” (#TransThriving). This acknowledges the number of major transgender achievements in the past 12 months. In this increasingly transphobic global political climate, we must use our newfound visibility to mobilize trans people against oppression. Visibility is not enough alone to bring transgender liberation. However, we can use visibility as a vital tool for transgender justice.

THRIVE: A TRANS JUSTICE ART EXHIBIT & RECEPTION,
is a celebration of Trans ARTivism, beauty and self-determination. All works are created by trans and non-binary individuals from across the country, provided by "Forward Together". In the lineage of our "Transcestors", this awe-inspiring exhibit fuels the struggle against white supremacy and transmisogyny. JOIN US ON TRANS DAY OF VISIBILITY AND LET'S THRIVE!
