Honoring Trans Day of Visibility 2024

Trans Day of Visibility (TDOV) celebrates trans people while honoring the progress and resilience of the community.

Protect Gender-affirming Care in Ohio

It is more important than ever that we celebrate, honor, and elevate our transgender and gender-nonconforming siblings. In the United States, state legislators introduced over 500 anti-LGBTQ+ bills in 2023. And in 2024, the numbers look just as troubling. The Ohio Senate already passed House Bill 68, a ban on gender-affirming medical care for trans minors.

Gender-affirming care is life-saving care. And at Equitas Health, we are doing everything we can to protect it in Ohio. For resources, calls to action, and updates on the fight to #ProtectGAC, please visit ProtectGAC.EquitasHealth.com.

This Trans Day of Visibility, Equitas Health is especially proud to support and be a part of these community resource and celebration events.

Let’s celebrate the power of trans visibility!
