This Saturday, March 31st, is the seventh annual Trans Visibility Day. Since this is a Saturday, students attending GSA at MTHS are going to be celebrating this event on Friday, March 30th, to get the word out about how important this part of their community is to them. Unlike Trans Day of remembrance, this day is to empower the Trans members of the LGBTQ+ community and to give them the recognition they deserve. Not for mourning, unlike Trans Day Of Remembrance, which is November 20th. If you’d like to learn how you can be an ally, here are some ways you can participate to show your support to the Trans members of the LGBTQ+ community.

  1. Spread information about the trans community.


TDOV is a day to celebrate the Trans community and to spread awareness about the many things that they have accomplished throughout the years.


  1. Respect Trans friendly pronouns.

    Whenever you see someone in public, and you don’t know what pronouns they use, instead of assuming, you can use singular They/Them pronouns. There are more than just He/Him/His and She/Her/Hers for pronouns, and this should be used more frequently and openly as to not misgender anyone.

  2. Educate yourself.

To learn more about Trans Visibility Day, and how you can be an ally, you can join GSA for a meeting in room 226 on Friday, March 30th.
