YouTubers you should watch in honour of Trans Day Of Visibility (TDOV)

If you didn’t already know, today is Transgender Day Of Visibility (TDOV) – a day in which trans, non-binary, intersex and other genders celebrate their identities by taking over social media.

March 31st is used to encourage these communities to be proud of who they are while sharing positivity, support and personal stories.

Today is incredibly vital in allowing trans, intersex and non-binary individuals to bring attention to what they have gone through and connect with one another.

Even more importantly, it allows those yet to be open or feel alone in who they are to acknowledge that they too have a future and be exposed to useful resources.

Transgender Day Of Visibility brings hope to a community that has otherwise been confined by society.

To honour today’s important day, we encourage you to check out these lovely, creative individuals.
