Transgender Day of Visibility 2022

Transgender Day of Visibility 2022

Held on 31 March, Trans Day of Visibility is an annual international celebration of trans pride and awareness and recognises the experiences and achievements of the trans and gender diverse community.

For a community that is too often underrepresented, Trans Day of Visibility (TDOV) is about reclaiming space and being visible on their terms.

For many trans and gender diverse people, a lack of representation, role models, and community can be isolating and make it difficult to feel proud in their identities.

RMIT is committed to the inclusion of the trans and gender diverse community.

Whilst there is always space to do and be better, RMIT has made great progress on some key pieces of work including: 

A key priority moving forward will be progressing the preferred name project, to ensure that all students can use a preferred name at RMIT and have this name reflected in all platforms and systems (other than where legal name is required).

Diverse Genders, Sexes and Sexualities Listening Group

We want to hear from you! 

We're calling for students and staff to share their lived experience through a series of Listening Groups dedicated to shaping RMIT's Diversity and Inclusion Framework and Action Plans 2022.

At RMIT, we want everyone to feel welcome, valued and free to be themselves. 

As part of a community-led effort to advance equity and contribute to systemic change, we'd like to hear from you on where we can do better and what we need to do to get there.

A a dedicated online session for our Trans and Gender Diverse students will be held on Friday 6 May.
