Each year on March 31, the world recognizes International Transgender Day of Visibility- a time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments and experiences of transgender people around the globe.
Triangle Community Center stands firmly behind all transgender people of all ages and walks of life today and every day, celebrates the accomplishments big and small of trans individuals, and remains dedicated to uplifting trans voices in our local communities to increase visibility and to fight cissexism and transphobia.
Transgender Day of Visibility 2017 is March 31st. Triangle Community Center will celebrate with a series of happenings, culminating in a big TDOV reception at TCC on Sunday, April 9th from 4:30PM to 6:30PM. Next week, we will highlight the experiences and achievements of people in the local transgender community. We are currently accepting video submission and reservations to participate in a series of Facebook Live interview from individuals who identify anywhere under the transgender umbrella. To find out how to get involved, volunteer, or contribute your voice, reach out to Layne at Layne@ctpridecenter.org.
2017 will be Triangle Community Center's second annual TDOV celebration. At TCC's first TDOV event last year, more than 50 individuals showed up to TCC for a panel and reception, put together by and for individuals in the transgender community. Allies welcome! We look forward to celebrating #translives with you on TDOV and every day!
We highlight voices and accomplishments in the local transgender community, and check below for further links, ways to contribute to transgender visibility, and more.
