March 31st is apparently the day that has been used for this purpose for years, but this year it falls on the same day as Easter. Leftists won’t care.

Colleges to celebrate ‘Transgender Visibility Day’ on Easter Sunday

While many Americans will celebrate Easter this Sunday, some institutions around the country will commemorate March 31 as “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

On March 1, the Chancellor’s Committee for the Status of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer People at the University of Illinois Chicago announced it would be celebrating the progressive holiday. “[Transgender Day of Visibility] is dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of the work that is still needed for trans equality,” the group’s message states.

The committee also writes that “[n]ot using a trans person’s name or pronouns is another form of disrespect against transgender people.” As such, the group informs the university community that “[if] you encounter someone not using a trans person’s name or pronouns, check in with the trans person, disrupt communication and speak up.”

Similarly, the Office of the President for the University of Massachusetts System has also proclaimed this Sunday to be Transgender Day of Visibility.

”Held annually on March 31, Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is a time to celebrate transgender and non-binary people around the globe and acknowledge the determination it takes to live openly and authentically,” states the web page of UMass President Marty Meehan, a former Democrat congressman.

The president’s office also features “Ways to Support the Transgender Community,” which include an extensive list of commonly used pronouns, in addition to a “Glossary of Transgender Terms” compiled by the far-left LGBT nonprofit, GLAAD.

Not all schools who will be recognizing Transgender Day of Visibility are confined to liberal states.

The University of Kentucky College of Public Health has announced that it also intends to “celebrate and show support for the lives and contributions of trans people and uplift the voices of those in the community” on March 31.
