Join Us on Transgender Day of Visibility (3/31, 3-5PM)

Updated: Mar 17, 2023

On March 31st, HHHRC’s Transgender Services Program, The Kuaʻana Project, will host a sign-waving event on the Beretania side of the capitol from 3:00 - 4:15 PM, followed by a rally in the rotunda to mark International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV).

Transgender people have been under attack in Republican-controlled legislatures on the continent, including proposed bans on all gender-affirming care and preventing updates to ID cards and other government documents. Anti-trans measures are part of a larger concerted campaign against diversity, equity, and inclusion. The ACLU is tracking 413 anti-LGBTQ bills in the U.S. this year, with four measures introduced in Hawaiʻi.

“We invite the community to express support for trans people in Hawaiʻi, to celebrate the progress we’ve made in our state, and to affirm the dignity and worth of trans people in Hawaiʻi and everywhere,” said Kuaʻana Project Manager Maddie Sesepasara.

TDOV was founded in 2009 by a Michigan activist to elevate and celebrate the unique voices and identities of trans people, raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.
