Trans Day of Visibility (TDoV) is celebrated on this year on 31 March 2024, and in interactive this workshop we explored the meaning and importance of TDoV and explore how to bring a full celebration of TDoV to your own religious/spiritual community.

In this workshop we brainstormed to generate ideas about how to include this celebration in our own particular religious/spiritual community contexts.
