Things to do on International Transgender Day of Visibility

We've rounded up several ways that you can celebrate and support transgender people in our community

Before activist Rachel Crandall started International Transgender Day of Visibility in 2009, the only trans-centred day that existed was Trans Day of Remembrance. Unlike the latter which is a day of mourning, Trans Day of Visibility is intended to be an opportunity to celebrate gender diverse identities and achievements. It falls on March 31 annually, and if you're keen to celebrate or get involved, we've rounded up a number of events and opportunities across Melbourne and Victoria. 

Looking for queer-friendly bars? We've rounded up our favourite places that cater for and celebrate queer communities.

  • Gay and lesbian
  • St Kilda

The Victorian Pride Centre is the first purpose-built centre for Australia's LGBTIQ+ communities. Located in St Kilda, the space was first supported by State Government in 2016, with construction completed in 2021. All are welcome to visit, and if you're keen to support the centre's mission, you can donate here

Transgender Victoria is the leading body for trans and gender diverse advocacy, training and resource development in Victoria. If you're keen to support the work it does, you can make a donation here. Your donation will go towards efforts including subsiding services for gender diverse people, supporting grassroots initiatives, providing industry training to ensure inclusive environments and more.
