There are two transgender holidays. The International Transgender Day of Remembrance is honored every November 20th. It is a memorial. Practically every member of the transgender, nonbinary, and genderqueer community, myself included, knows a friend or lover who has died before their time, as is statistically likely, a victim of injustice, of hate crime or lack of (mental) healthcare. Today is March 31st: the International Transgender Day of Visibility. Today we celebrate our diversity of gender and this celebration is also a protest.
