20 Inspiring & Important Tweets On Transgender Day Of Visibility

Today is Trans Day of Visibility, an annual day about celebrating the incredible achievements made by trans people around the world. It also aims to increase awareness and visibility of the trans community and fight cissexism and transphobia, which, very unfortunately, continue to exist. Eighty percent of students don’t feel safe in their schools because of their identified gender—and no one should ever have to feel that way. 

It is so important—today and everyday—to take a stand and show support for the trans community. We’ve rounded up some of the most inspiring tweets that highlight the power of Trans Day of Visibility and why we need to continue pushing for trans visibility and equality.

This year’s theme is #TransResistance, because it is crucial to actively fight against transphobia; especially given that the current political landscape has not proven progressive on trans rights (aka human rights). Use the hashtags #TransResistance and #TDOV to share your voice!
