Hey all! 

 

We'd like to wish all of our trans and gender diverse community members a very happy Trans Day of Visibility! 

 

A dark skined illustrated hand waves a sign saying "Trans Rights are Human Rights" over a blue sunny sky.

 

Today's the 12th International Transgender Day of Visibility, and it's dedicated to celebrating trans and gender-diverse people, recognising trans and gender diverse experiences and achievements, and also raising awareness of the discrimination that transgender people still face worldwide

 

There's some great ways to get involved or learn more:  

 

tdov.org.au has some beautiful videos from people sharing what TDOV means to them, and a stream of people sharing their stories with #BeSeen

 

transhub.org.au has an amazing collection of resources for trans folk, information, and material for people who want to be better allies of the trans people in your life

 

This article  is a longer read from the conversation, it gives a great outline about the history of today 

 

There's some awesome personal stories on the ReachOut youth pages here

 

Our recent ReachOut AMAA with the LGBTQIA+ community here 

 

And a great article on how to be a good ally here

We'd love to hear about what you've done to celebrate today! And if you have any resources you'd like to share please do - we'd love to check them out.
