In a couple of weeks, it will be the national Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender expansive people. There are several ways to get involved.
November 11 – 17 individuals and organizations around the country will participate Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and address the issues these communities face. The final day of Transgender Awareness Week is theTransgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. You can read more about Transgender Awareness Week and the Transgender Day of remembrance below, and find out how you can participate. More about Transgender Awareness Week >>
I AM: Trans People Speak is a campaign created by the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) and sponsored by GLAAD to raise awareness about the diversity of transgender communities. It aims to lift the voices of transgender individuals, as well as their families, friends, and allies. Last year, GLAAD added four videos to the “I AM: Trans People Speak” video series. Watch them now, then share!
