Today is the Trans Day of Visibility — an annual international holiday for raising the profile of transgender people around the world.
As we recently explained, you can’t always tell who is trans just by looking. In fact, since trans people face higher levels of discrimination than lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, some trans folks prefer to keep a low profile.
Whether you know someone who is openly trans or quietly living their truth, we hope that you support them and oppose anti-trans prejudice everywhere. Only together can we make a non-violent world where traditional gender roles get tossed in the waste bin of history where they belong.
