Do, Download, Donate: Transgender Visibility Day

Last year, we came together with the partnership of our guest speaker and award-winning journalist Imara Jones to unpack the layers and obstacles that the transgender community is forced to climb through for safety and peace. For this year’s Transgender Visibility Day, we urge our community to stretch beyond bearing witness and jump into action as extreme violations of basic human rights persist. Trans people deserve to not just survive – but to thrive.

The materials below provide opportunities to become more fluent in the lived experiences of the transgender community and to take action.

To amplify the work of @TransWeek, we are highlighting some of the orgs that they have prioritized as the urgent need for local action continues:

  • The Knights & Orchards Society: They provide affirming STD/STI testing, reproductive care, and Trans-Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) care. They also provide behavioral support services and direct support assistance in a financial or housing crisis. Their client care network currently extends throughout Alabama, and we are actively expanding our reach to encompass the entire Southeastern region of the US.

  • Black Trans Advocacy Coalition: They aim to help improve the Black transgender human experience by overcoming violence and injustice in the world through the power, value and love of all people.
