Recognizing Trans Day of Visibility

April 1, 2024

Recognizing Trans Day of Visibility

On March 31, we honor International Transgender Day of Visibility – a day dedicated to celebrating the lives and achievements of trans and gender non-conforming people, as well as recognizing the discrimination the community faces. Visibility is important as it allows for trans people to share and thrive in their lived experience and provides an opportunity for allies to reflect on supporting the resilience and safety of people in the trans community. 

Transgender people experience higher levels of depression, anxiety, and suicidality than cisgender people and the highest rates of mental health challenges among people who identify as LGBTQIA+. Check out our event “Supporting the Mental Health of Transgender People” below to learn more and find additional resources from the Center of Excellence on LGBTQ+ Behavioral Health Equity.
