FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) – Transgender Day of Visibility is an international event dedicated to recognizing the accomplishments of the transgender community.
It’s also a day to raise awareness about the struggles members of the community face and advocate for more protected rights.
Executive Director and Founder of the non-profit, Stand with Trans, Roz Keith, said that it all started when nine years ago, her child came out as transgender. She said that they struggled to find resources and as her son began his journey to transition, they wanted to share their story publicly.
Keith said that so many families just like hers started to come out of the woodwork and connect with one another.
She said that Transgender Day of Visibility is really important. It’s about raising awareness and recognizing that the world is very diverse.
Stand with Trans offers virtual support groups, ally parents, and events.
They have an upcoming event, Gamming Night on April 1 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
