Celebrating Trans Day of Visibility - 31 March


We’re celebrating trans and gender non-conforming people by raising awareness and increasing visibility. You can get involved by joining the events and showing your support in practical ways.

Trans rights are human rightsToday we’re recognising International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV), joining others around the world to celebrate the resilience and success of trans and gender non-conforming people.

Running since 2009, TDoV is an annual celebration of trans and gender non-conforming people that raises awareness of trans rights. The day also highlights how the trans community continues to face prejudice, discrimination and transphobia and anti-trans violence, including in universities.

Equality, diversity and inclusivity are important to us at the university, and we are committed to a programme of action to challenge and overcome barriers to representation and inclusion. We are a proud member of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme  and recognise the importance of the LGBT+ Staff Community, Women’s Network, allies and the wider community in promoting trans equality and acting as agents of change at the university.

It’s curious, isn’t it? You admire the suffragettes, you condemn what triggered the Stonewall riots, you defend all that has been achieved on disability rights, and you insist that Black Lives Matter. And yet, despite all of this, still you question whether we can be ourselves, be called by our names, or be referred to as we are.
