How can I get involved?

We invite community members to send us artwork or tag us in the original content on social media, relating to various issues facing trans people. Gay City will share out the artwork and tag the artist if they wish.

This is an opportunity to memorialize victims, draw attention to specific issues, and also spread joy, creativity, and resilience.

Artwork can be made specifically for the occasion, or you may use this as an opportunity to share existing work, so long as it relates to TDOR or trans visibility and awareness.

What should I create?

That’s up to you, as long as it relates to trans awareness or trans day of visibility in some way. You could memorialize trans victims of violence, bring awareness to a specific issue, teach us something, etc.

The format could be a video, poem, graphic, article, painting, drawing, etc.

In order to keep everyone safe due to COVID-19, all artwork must be submitted digitally and will be shared on social media.
