Talking transphobia on Transgender Day of Visibility

Founded in the United States by trans activist Rachel Crandall back in 2009, Transgender Day of Visibility is held to bring the lives of transgender people to the forefront, rather than the only other pre-existing holiday, “Transgender Day of Remembrance”, which mourned the murders of transgender people.

Recently we’ve seen a push for more letters of the sex, sexuality and gender diverse alphabet to be included in media coverage and everyday education.

Current host of Family Matters and previous co-host of Trans Positions on Joy 94.9, self-proclaimed IT nerd, mother of two, trans woman Michelle Sheppard joined Jake and Jack on Gay Panic to talk transphobia and why visibility to so important.
