International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is an annual event occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society. (Wikipedia)
This seem as good of a place as any to address an anonymous comment I received a few day ago on my "As A Boy" post. The writer is a high school and elementary school classmate.
Only God can save you Xxxxxxx William's you must return to (my little town in Virginia) and surrender your life to Jesus #Trump2024.
First, no surprise on the Trump thing. Well Joe, I do not see that any salvation is necessary. My salvation is being free of a religion that imposes fundamentalist / controlling views on others. Was not Jesus teaching mainly about love? I am not feeling the love here - only a contemptuous demand. I am proud to be visible, out, and spreading understanding and love.
Today is about being proud, visible and happy. It is a time to celebrate being transgender and non-binary. It is a time for people around the globe to acknowledge the courage it takes to live openly and authentically.
Today is our day.
