Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Transgender Day of Visibility.

This day is meant for trans people around the world to celebrate who they are, and to offer support to those who haven't been able to come out yet.

The first International Transgender Day of Visibility was held on March 31st 2009. International TDOV was created in 2010 by trans advocate Rachel Crandall. Crandall, the head of Transgender Michigan, created TDOV in response to the overwhelming majority of media stories about transgender people being focused on violence. She hoped to create a day where people could re-focus on celebrating the lives of transgender people, empowering them to live authentically, while still acknowledging that due to discrimination, not every trans person can or wants to be visible.

Joe Biden officially proclaimed March 31st 2021, as a Transgender Day of Visibility, proclaiming in part, “I call upon all Americans to join in the fight for full equality for all transgender people." The White House published this proclamation; this made Biden the first American president to issue a formal presidential proclamation recognizing the Transgender Day of Visibility.
