March 31st, 2010 is the second annual International Transgender Day of Visibility. Rachel Crandall, who leads Transgender Michigan, started the day last year and it's already catching on in the community. Since Transgender Day of Remembrance is focused on remembering and mourning those we have lost to violence it is good to have a day to celebrate the amazing lives of trans folks as well.


The International Transgender Day of Visibility was only created in Michigan in 2009 so it's not surprising we haven't heard much about it yet.  Given the high rates of violence against transgender people internationally it may be quite risky for many transgender people and their allies to celebrate this day.

Thanks for mentioning it Layla.
