Rally and march at the Utah Capitol for Trans Day of Visibility
A rally and march are scheduled for March 31 to celebrate the 14th annual International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV). The day is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of transgender and gender-nonconforming people while raising awareness of the work that still needs to be done to achieve trans justice.
To commemorate the occasion, Project Rainbow Utah is organizing an all-ages trans rally and march, starting at the Utah State Capitol Building at 5 p.m. The rally will take place from 5 to 5:30 p.m. The march will go from 5:30 to 5:45 p.m. to City Creek Park, where there will be speakers and a youth open mic through 7 p.m. Additionally, an incredible 21+ event will take place at a certain club after the march, which is sure to be unforgettable.
More information and updates will be on Project Rainbow’s social media platforms, including an after-party at a 21+ venue.
Trans flags can be ordered for your yard from projectrainbowutah.org to provide support for trans and non-binary youth.
The Human Rights Campaign estimates there are more than 2 million transgender people across the United States.
