Tomorrow is Transgender Day of Visibility! This is a day to celebrate us and to celebrate the lives we lead and to talk about the challenges we have survived and are still surviving. But let’s all be sure to stick to tags that are specifically for our community and not piggybacks off of other movements. (ie. don’t use #translivesmatter or #transtakeover or anything that white queer/trans folk have tried taking from black tumblr)
This is an awesome opportunity for us as a community to show all the members of our community that they have our support and solidarity. By not hijacking slogans and hashtags, we are
demonstrating respect and empathy for a struggle not all of us are a part of. There are a lot of tags that can be used tomorrow but we have to stay aware. Our day of celebration should not detract for any other celebrations.
Just a quick reminder for y’all. Love you and can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures tomorrow.
