International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) takes place each year on March 31 to celebrate trans and non-binary people and raise awareness of discrimination faced by trans people worldwide. This year’s TDOV theme is I Am Enough, which has the following aims:
Affirmation and Empowerment – For trans people, a message of strength, resilience and community. The aim of the campaign is to provide a message that ties together the following themes:
- Acceptance of individuals in their chosen gender, just the way they are without the need for change/treatment/qualifying factors.
- Promotion of self-deceleration of gender Identity.
- Visibility of non-binary identities.
Awareness Raising and Allyship – For non-trans/cis people to be able to stand up and show solidarity and support for their trans family, friends and colleagues.
