International Transgender Day of Visibility 2022 #tdov

Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility, TDOV! TDOV was started by Rachel Crandall who spoke about the importance of visible allies with Samantha Allen for Them:

I read an article once by a prominent activist who said that it’s not transgender people who need to be visible right now, so much as our allies. I really agree with that. In fact, I would like to use this article as a chance to challenge everyone who does Visibility Day events to also focus on allies and the ways we can get allies to come out because I really believe it is a “coming out” process for them. It’s easy to call yourself an ally. However, to really get out there for us, speak up for us, to write letters and educate your friends — that is something else. And that’s what we really need to focus on. That’s the only way we’re really going to change anything. If it’s only us saying that things need to change, almost nothing will happen.

GLSEN has resources to help create trans-inclusive school environments,NPR published this guide to gender identiy terms and an episode of Life Kit about making the workplace more equitable for trans people, HRC has a guide to being an LGBTQ ally and a ton of transgender resources, Planned Parenthood has a guide to support someone who’s trans, GLAAD put together these tips for allies of transgender people and the Trevor Project has an introductory guide to being an ally to transgender and nonbinary youth.
