Trans Day Of Visibility 2016: Embodying Our Legacy, March 31

16875769167_4eed1333ea_o

Join us for a magical evening of celebrating community – TDoV 2016 on March 31st! Across the country and worldwide there has been an increased visibility of our transgender and GNC communities. Despite increased national media visibility, 2015 goes on record as one of the most dangerous years for transgender and gender non-conforming people, with alarming rates of violence, homicides, and suicides – specifically impacting trans women of color and youth.

Trans Day of Visibility is an annual holiday celebrated around the world. The day is dedicated to honoring our community leaders while raising awareness of victories and work that is still needed to save trans lives. The TDoV 2016 is a collaboration with Trans: Thrive at API Wellness Center and the SF LGBT Center’s Trans Employment Program (TEEI), other community partners and sponsors. TDoV has become a vital staple of the San Francisco/ Bay Area.

The evening will include fabulous entertainment, awards, music, food and drinks. Everyone is welcome! Evening attire recommended but not expected. ASL and Spanish Translation will be provided. Contact us to support or get engaged with TDoV 2016.
