Celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility

Today, March 31, is International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) which honors the trans community and celebrates transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming people. While TDOV is a day to celebrate the lives and contributions of trans people, we must also bring attention to the poverty, discrimination, and violence the community faces.

“In 2023, over 400 anti-LGBTQ bills have been filed so far, with over half specifically targeting trans people, particularly youth. Both 2021 and 2022 saw a massive increase in anti-trans legislation. This anti-trans hypervisibility harms all trans people who are being demonized and scapegoated by politicians and in many media outlets” (GLAAD).

Villanova supports diversity, equity, and inclusion. Learn more about the University’s commitment and efforts to embrace and expand diversity in our community.

Learn more about TDOV on the Human Rights Campaign website.

We encourage the Villanova community to increase awareness about related topics, needs, and challenges the trans community faces. Explore trans and queer resources available to the Villanova community here. No list of this nature could ever be comprehensive, but we hope these titles will serve as a starting point.
