Transgender Day Of Visibility

Pride In T

Transgender Day Of Visibility, an event scheduled to take place for the first time in history on March 31st, 2009 with various events to take place around the globe.

Rachel Crandall, who's brainchild of "Transgender Day Of Visibility," which focuses on the good and positive of the community is unlike "Transgender Day Of Remembrance" which focuses on those who were lost due to bigotry and hatred.

The Transgender Community was the "driving force" behind the gay movement during the infamous 1969 Stonewall Riots where for the first time the gay community fought back.

One big change from the usual says Crandall was that the Transgender Day Of Visibility was done solely on the grassroots level and without backing from any large organizations.

Contact your local LGBT Community Center to learn more or if there is no events planned, why not start one!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!

I am glad it was something you enjoy reading Leecee.

My idea behind this site is to fight for the rights of the whole LGBT community!
