This Thursday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility
It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride
This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.
If you are trans
This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.
If you are not trans
Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.
Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.
Done with the klamille, klayley and haylijah bullshit in the klaroline tag and anti the originals tag. I don’t watch the show. I read kalijah/kennett/mabeckah/klaroline/finnxsage fanfiction. To me those are the original family. NOT YOUR MYSTICAL SNOWFLAKE QUEEN HAYLEY. Lovely how they blame klaroliners for PT, yes there are bad apples in the fandom but most of us aren’t hate filled and genuinely aren’t obsessed with the originals tv show. I loved Phoebe in H2o, Cleo was my favourite and I loved Faye in the SC. So no I don’t hate Phoebe Tonkin. I hate Hayley Marshall and I blame Julie Plec for writing her like that as she is only a vessel for this demon spawn and for a future love triangle which will ruin Klaus & Elijah’s relationship. They just another defan ppl!
Don’t like = Don’t watch/Don’t come in tag.
Whether you a klaroline, klayley, kalijah, kennett - everyone needs to learn this. If you don’t ship it. Don’t go into the fucking tag.
P.S By the way did you klayley/to stans forget that you send the klaroliners hate? Yeah I remember shelovedtooeasily getting attacked personally for her appearance for example and none of you do shit. Hypocrites everywhere.
