2021 National Trans Visibility March Moves to On-The-Ground March October 9, 2021 In Orlando, Florida hosted by One Orlando Alliance and Come Out With Pride

The National Trans Visibility March (NTVM), in its third year of advancing the rights of trans and non-binary individuals, will mark the return to an on-the-ground March on Saturday, October 9, 2021, in Orlando, Florida. This will be the first March to take place outside of Washington, DC. “This past year, NTVM focused on the 2020 Elections with the ‘My Vote Is My Voice’ initiative and hosted the NTVM in a virtual format. This year’s theme, “No Lives Left Behind,” will focus on regional safety plans to address the number of tumultuous murders that are continually taking place with trans identified people. We are taking the National Trans Visibility March back to the streets and on this day, where we celebrate National Trans Visibility Day, we are so pleased to announce that we have selected Orlando, Florida as the host city and we are collaborating with One Orlando Alliance and Come Out With Pride,” said Marissa Miller, CEO and Founder of the National Trans Visibility March.

 

The NTVM is collaborating with the One Orlando Alliance, who will serve as the local host organization for the 2021 March to be held in collaboration with Orlando's Come Out With Pride festival and parade on Saturday, October 9. “One Orlando Alliance is grateful to have this opportunity to highlight and stand alongside our amazing transgender and non-binary community and local transgender/non-binary leaders. Hosting the March here in Orlando is an honor,” said Josh Bell, Executive Director, One Orlando Alliance.

 

Local leadership will also include the Gender Advancement Project, a trans-led grassroots movement dedicated to the progression and inclusion of transgender/GNB individuals in all facets of society. This cooperative effort will make it possible for these two events—both vital to the LGBTQ+ community—to enhance and support one another. “We, at Gender Advancement Project, are very excited to welcome our fellow transgender community members and allies from across the nation to our City Beautiful. The fellowship experience that comes from gathering throughout the weekly line up of events leading up to the March is unique and makes the actual March experience a beautiful and memorable one.

 

“Over the past few years, our local transgender community has unified and become a strong movement, like it has never been seen before. We are happy to showcase this growth and “We’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of our trans and non-binary siblings from across the nation as Orlando gathers once again at Lake Eola,” said Jeff Prystajko, Board President of Come Out With Pride. “As the largest single-day parade and festival in Central Florida, we’re certain this will create an historic opportunity to both share in trans and nonbinary culture as well as educate the community and allies about the struggles and safety trans and non-binary individuals continue to face every day.”

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 2020 -- The National Trans Visibility March will host a week long virtual event in lieu of an in person March. “With COVID-19 causing a stronger enforcement of social distancing, a virtual march is the safest alternative to continue the mission of fighting for trans equality and encouraging the community to vote while pushing for spaces of vocal and social freedom  among young leaders.

The 2020 NTVM Torch Awards will take place on October 2nd at 4PM PT/7PM ET at the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce in DC and will stream live for all to take part virtually.

National Trans Visibility March pledges solidarity to Reclaim Pride.

Chicago, Illinois, July 6, 2020

 

The National Trans Visibility March is mobilizing across the country in preparation of the second annual Trans March in October. On Sunday, June 28, 2020, in Chicago, we pledged our support and marched alongside our siblings at the Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride March.

 “On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride (Chicago), I would love to thank the National Trans Visibility March for their support and recognition of our march as a national initiative for The Transgender Visibility March On Washington DC,” said Fredy Roberts-Ramirez, the VOICES Project Manager- Broadway Youth Center Chicago. “Thank you, Marissa Miller, and Wemi Esho for the plaque, your presence, your quick response for endorsement and believing that this initiative falls in line with the mission of the National Trans Visibility March. We will continue to voice the initiative and make sure Chicago is present at the National March in Washington DC on October 3, 2020. Thank you so much for standing in solidarity with us, it’s greatly appreciated”. 

 

The pioneer edition of the Pride Without Prejudice- Reclaiming Pride march brought out thousands of people marching through the streets of Chicago to support and uplift Black Trans Lives. The overlaying theme of the​ march included the demand for justice for Ciara Minaj, Carter Frasier, Tony McDade and the other Black Trans people that have been murdered across the United States this year.

 

Ignited by the murder of George Floyd, we launch 'We Can’t Breathe Either’ campaign in June to protest the killings of Black Trans people in America;  especially Black Trans women and demand that justice be done. 

The first-ever National Trans Visibility March kicked off on September 28, 2019, bringing thousands out onto   the streets of Washington, D.C. to protest the hate and discrimination against Transgender, Gender Non-conforming and Non-binary (TGNCNB)  people. March with us this year on October 3, 2020 as we make our voices heard at polls. To march with us, kindly register to attend.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 2020 -- The National Trans Visibility March’s recent virtual event, BlackOut Racism, reached over 20,000 people on June 13th. “The feedback was so overwhelming that we decided to continue the series until the March happening on October 3rd,” remarks this year’s National Strategy Director, Dani Farrell, “it’s important that we keep these conversations going and the National Trans Visibility March believes it’s our responsibility to provide a platform to do so!”

 

In July, the National Trans Visibility March will host the next installment of BlackOut Racism. NTVM will bring back the co-moderator’s from Real Deal: The Trans Experience; Hope Giselle, trans activist, author, and NTVM’s Director of External Affairs along with Tatiana Williams, LGBTQ advocate and Co-Founder/Executive Director of Transinclusive Group, Inc. The panels for the July event will focus on voting and conversations with non-Black allies on how their contributions can shape the future of the current movements.
