#TransDayOfVisibility & Launch of TransHub

Trans Day of Visibility

International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is an event occurring annually on 31 March 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.

Transgender and Gender Diverse people aged 18 and over are nearly eleven times more likely to attempt suicide, eighteen times more likely to think about suicide, and are nearly 5 times more likely to be diagnosed with depression in their lifetime compared to the general population.

Sport should be a safe and welcoming environment for people with diverse genders and sexualities, and we aim so help sporting codes to achieve this, across Australia.

We are proud to bring you TransHub, a digital information and resource platform for all trans and gender diverse (TGD) people in NSW, our loved ones, allies and health providers.

This platform is an initiative from ACON, NSW’s leading health organisation specialising in community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders.

TransHub offers the information that many of us so desperately needed, but didn’t have access to as we grew up or grew toward our most authentic selves.
