Transgender Day of Visibility Read-In
International Day of Trans Visibility, falling on March 31st, is an annual event celebrating and highlighting the lives and experiences of trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people throughout the world.
This March 31st at 1:00 PM, Randall Library, the LGBTQIA+ Office, and the Gender Studies Research Center are hosting a read-in, where trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming folks can read passages from works that have been meaningful to them, including from their own writing. As the day's focus is on prioritizing and highlighting the voices of trans people, we invite cisgender allies to attend and listen.
