On 31 March 2023, we celebrate with gender-diverse people across Australia by sharing stories, starting conversations, and showing support.
Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event that is marked all around Australia and the world. It is a celebration of trans pride and diverse identity. The day is about raising awareness and the visibility of the trans community, and recognising the achievements and lived experiences of trans and gender diverse people. This visibility is important because many gender diverse people experience isolation through lack of representation and role models.
Here are some awesome resources that are helpful for becoming an informed ally:
- Trans 101 – being trans, gender identity, and what it’s all about.
- What are pronouns – a guide to using pronouns and why they matter.
- Show your support with these shareable trans pride resources for social media
To celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility 2023, the Library has compiled a reading list of items within the collection that highlight the stories and experiences of gender diverse people. These items can also be found in a book display in the foyer of Fisher Library.
