The Trans Day of Visibility (or TDoV) is an annual event in March celebrating trans people of all kinds and promoting tolerance and acceptance of trans people. In 2023 there was a full program of events in Liverpool including:
A Trans flag-raising ceremony at the Town Hall, an opening night party, beauty and wellbeing workshops, a day of activities at the Museum of Liverpool, a program of LGBTQIA+ film shorts at FACT and a pool competition in The Lisbon. Planning will begin soon for TDoV 2024 so if you want to get involved, contact us.
Trans Day of Visibility is part of a calendar of trans events which include the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Trans Phobia (IDAHOBIT, 17th May), Pride (usually June or July each year), Trans History Month (August) and the Trans Day of Remembrance (last Sunday in November) when we remember and protest about those trans people who have been killed, tortured or in other ways physically and psychologically harmed for being trans.
Trans activists and supporters gather for the Trans Day of Visibility in Manchester in 2022.
