Transgender Day of Visibility

28 March 2018

UQ is proud to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), held 31 March each year, and show our support for the trans community.

What is Transgender Day of Visibility?

TDOV is an international day of significance that is held annually on the 31 March. It aims to raise awareness about transgender people and their experiences, and is a day to celebrate the achievements of transgender people, but also to recognise the discrimination and transphobia that they can experience.

This year’s theme is “surviving, thriving” (#TransThriving). The theme recognises the achievements of the trans community in the last 12 months.

How can I get involved?

Join the UQ Ally Network and the UQU Queer Collective for a picnic to celebrate:

  • Date: Thursday 29 March
  • Time: 11am–12pm
  • Venue: UQ Union Hub
  • Details: light lunch will be provided, but please feel free to BYO lunch.

You can also get involved by raising awareness about this important day in your work area.
