Trans Day of Visibility celebrates the accomplishments of the transgender and gender non-conforming people in our communities. It also invites us to recognize how hard they fought – and continue to fight – for every one of them.
Anti-trans bills are gaining ground in state legislatures across the country. Anti-trans hate and bias crimes are up. TDOV is an opportunity to respond to the political, social, and physical violence that seeks to erase the existence of trans people with defiance, determination, and joy.
Ohioans will celebrate this day at events in cities across the state. Equitas Health is proud to support and be a part of many of them.
Join us and celebrate the power of trans visibility!
