Transgender Day Of Visibility: Trans and non-binary media professionals to celebrate

Trans Day Of Visibility is celebrated every year on the 31st of March.

And what better way of celebrating TDoV, than by supporting the work of transgender and non-binary media professionals who cover trans lives all year round.

Trans Day Of Visibility is all about focusing on the gender euphoria in trans and NB lives.

By focusing on the joy and euphoria in trans lives - we can still cover the issues, without getting trapped in the gloom. We can do this all year round.

The day was first established in 2009, 12 years ago. In that time there have been huge changes in the lives of trans and non-binary folk.

Here are just ten of the many more trans and nonbinary media professionals who are at the forefront of pushing the narrative forward.

We celebrate, pay and publish trans and nonbinary creatives to write our weekly newsletter that sums up the LGBTQIA+ world. Sign up for free
