Being transgender is not abnormal because
it is nature who has decided so. So I'm proud of myself !

International Transgender Day Of Visibility (TDoV)
The very existence of such a day can lead to reflection on gender. Giving visibility to transgender people necessarily means affirming loud and clear the existence of gender, no offense to certain "grumpy intellectuals" who would like to affirm and teach the opposite...
International Transgender Awareness Day is an annual event that takes place on March 31 and is intended to celebrate transgender people, regardless of gender, and to raise awareness of the discrimination they face around the world.
This special day was created by transgender activist Rachel Crandall of Michigan in 2009 in response to the lack of a day of LGBT celebration dedicated to transgender people, and citing frustration that the only known day that is dedicated to transgender people is trans day of remembrance honoring transgender people who have been victims of hate crimes. No day is dedicated to celebrating living members of the transgender community.
The first International Transgender Awareness Day was held on March 31, 2009.
In 2014, the event took place in many places around the world, including Ireland and Scotland. A first French event took place on March 31, 2018 in Paris. In Belgium, to date, although the day is mentioned by some media, no significant event has been organised.
This is indeed a world day which shamelessly confesses its intentions: to give itself visibility... at least things are clear and for 24 hours, we will talk about it !
Because of the covid-19 pandemic, in 2020, no demonstration, no gathering could be organized. This has not stopped many associations and many famous trans personalities from showing their support for the transgender community.
In 2021, still under health restrictions, there were no more demonstrations on this day of transgender visibility which means that we are still and always invisible !
This year 2022 is the thirteenth time that this day has been celebrated. Our association, still in training on March 31, 2022, was unable to organize any event on this occasion. But we will catch up in 2023. We promise !
