The 2016 South Bay Trans Day of Visibility was celebrated on April 2, 2016. We celebrated, had great discussions, heard from speakers with important information to share, watched films... and raised over $1.2k for the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Community Center.

The Transgender Day of Visibility is an international event to complement the Transgender Day of Remembrance. We focus on recognizing and celebrating trans lives and experiences. Everyone is welcome! We are going to have a blast!
