TDOV is a day to show your support for the trans community. It aims to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community. Unlike Transgender Day of Remembrance, this is not a day for mourning: this is a day of empowerment and getting the recognition we deserve!
Rachel Crandall, the head of Transgender Michigan, created in TDOV in 2010 to celebrate the trans community in a positive light. Read more about it here. Since 2013, TSER has provided social media, promotion, and outreach for TDOV.
When is TDOV?
TDoV is on March 31st every year!
Where is TDOV?
Everywhere! We encourage you to have discussions, create direct actions, and spread knowledge about the trans community no matter where you are! You can also join our Facebook event and use hashtag #tdov on social media.
What is this year’s theme?
For the first time since 2012, we did not have a theme for TDOV. Due to the coronavirus, we put all our programs on hold. We encourage you to stay at home support trans people who may be affected.
