Created by a Michigan-based transgender activist, Rachel Crandall, in 2009, Worldwide Transgender Day of Visibility (usually shortened to Trans Visibility Day) falls on March 31 yearly. In 2024, that date coincidentally falls on Easter Sunday, which is decided yearly by marking the primary Sunday after the complete moon occurring on or after the Spring Equinox.

President Joe Biden marked the push for transgender rights with an announcement recognising Trans Visibility Day on Friday that instantly set off alarm bells on the far proper.

“On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary braveness and contributions of transgender Individuals and reaffirm our Nation’s dedication to forming a extra good Union — the place all individuals are created equal and handled equally all through their lives,” stated the president

He added: “I’m proud that my Administration has stood for justice from the beginning, working to make sure that the LGBTQI+ group can stay overtly, in security, with dignity and respect. “
