Transgender Day of Visibility
Resource Fair and Reception Wednesday, March 28th The Mid-America GLCC and Human Rights Campaign-KC are proud to co-present the fourth annual observance of the International Transgender Day of Visibility on Wednesday, March 28th at Californos, 4124 Pennsylvania Ave, Kansas City, MO 64111. A Transgender Resource Fair will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 pm and a Reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The Transgender Resource Fair is the largest in the region, featuring over 20 exhibitors.
The International Transgender Day of Visibility is a day dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide. It is a day for transgender people to stand up and be counted, and also for cis-gender people (people whose gender identity aligns with their sex at birth) to learn about and celebrate their transgender friends and family members.
A program will take place at 6:15 pm. Speakers include:
Colonel Sheri Swokowski (R), Retired Army Colonel with 22 years active and 35 years total service. Col. Swokowski is the senior, out, transgender veteran in the country.
