Join us fora magical evening of celebrating community – TDoV 2016 on March 31st! Across the country and international there has been an increased visibility of our transgender and GNC communities. Despite increased national media visibility, 2015 goes on record as one of the most dangerous years for transgender and gender non-conforming people, with alarming rates of violence, homicides, and suicides - specifically impacting trans women of color and youth.
Trans Day of Visibility is an International annual holiday celebrated around the world. The day is dedicated honoring our community leaders while raising awareness of victories and work that is still needed to save trans lives. The TDoV 2016, is a collaboration with Trans: Thrive at API Wellness Center and the SF LGBT Center’s Trans Employment Program (TEEI), other community partners and sponsors. TDoV has become a vital staple of San Francisco/ Bay Area.
The evening will include fabulous entertainment, awards, music, food and drinks. Everyone is welcome! Evening attire recommended but not expected. Contact us to support or get engaged with TDoV 2016.
