                 TLDEF Celebrates the Transgender Day of Visibility

Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund pays tribute to transgender individuals worldwide on the Transgender Day of Visibility a time set aside to “bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community.”

      Statement from TLDEF Interim Executive Director Dolph Goldenburg

“The Transgender Day of Visibility provides an important opportunity to celebrate the vast achievements of trans people across the globe and to honor their immense contributions to the betterment of our world. Transgender people are parents. They are children. They are siblings. They are part of our families whether chosen or blood relatives. Trans individuals have careers as artists, scientists, doctors, attorneys, construction workers, and in countless other professions. Transgender troops serve in our military with distinction and put their lives on the line to ensure safety for all Americans.  Trans people add to the rich tapestry that makes up our planet and remain resilient in the face of relentless discrimination. Today we shine a spotlight on our diverse transgender communities and recommit to creating a world free from anti-transgender bias.”
