Celebrating Trangender Day of Visibility 2024

“Transgender Day of Visibility is not just about being seen; it’s about embracing the courage to live authentically, celebrating diversity, and fostering a world where every individual’s truth is respected and honored.”

Dr. Fan Liang, Medical Director, Center for Transgender and Gender Expansive Health

“On this Transgender Day of Visibility, remember to take time for self-care. Transgender people need holistic, preventive primary care, and deserve to get it in a supportive atmosphere from practitioners who earn their trust.”

Dr. Helene Hedian, Director of Clinical Education, Center for Transgender and Gender Expansive Health

“There is a psychological phenomenon known as the exposure effect, which means that the more familiar we are with someone, the more likely we are to have positive feelings towards them. We can thus hope that on this day of increased visibility, more respect and more dignity can be shown to people who are transgender and gender expansive. May it be so!”

Dr. Kate Thomas, Director of Mental Health, Center for Transgender and Gender Expansive Health

Staying Stronger Together

The benefits of social connections are essential for optimal health among transgender and gender expansive communities. Reaching out and connecting meaningfully with medical care providers, friends, allies and others can help you build a network of support and transform your well-being. Remember that strength and resilience come from knowing that you are an individual, but never alone.
