The 31st of March is the day when human rights organizations around the world celebrate the International Transgender Day of Visibility. Its main purpose is to draw the attention of the general public to the discrimination faced by transgender people in different countries. This year, in honor of this important day, the Initiative Group of Transgender People and Their Allies “T*REVERS”, with the support of the Russian LGBT Network, organized an exhibition of works made by transgender people in “Revers” community center.
The works represent both transgender activists who fought for the rights of transgender people around the world in the past (Sylvia Rivera, Marsha P. Johnson, Lou Sullivan, etc.) as well as those activists who continue to make a significant contribution to the cause of increasing the visibility of transgender people (Jamison Green, Laverne Cox, Julia Serano and many others).
Each works provides a comment revealing the history of the struggle of transgender people against discrimination. You can get more detailed information about those works in the brochure “Trans*community: the history of the struggle for their rights. FACTS. PEOPLE. EVENTS” published by our initiative group following this link
