International Transgender Day of Visibility (often abbreviated as TDOV) is observed annually on March 31. Founded in 2009 by activist Rachel Crandall-Crocker, TDOV is a day to celebrate the resilience of transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people and their contributions to history, science, culture, and our communities.
International Transgender Day of Visibility is also a day to celebrate the rights that transgender people have won and are still fighting for today. For more information about the work toward equality for transgender people, visit transequality.org.
With your San Diego County Library card, you can check out the speculative fiction of Akwaeke Emezi, Charlie Jane Anders, and Yoon Ha Lee; the memoirs of Janet Mock and Jacob Tobia; the poetry of CAConrad; and many more works by transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming writers.
