    March 31, also known as the Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), turned out to be a hot topic this year, owing to an unintentional coincidence. The occasion, which annually falls on March 31, this year coincided with Easter Sunday, leading to some political hullabaloo.

    The TDOV, initiated in 2009, serves as an important day of recognition, aiming to highlight the accomplishments of transgender and gender-nonconforming people while raising awareness around their rights. But when President Joe Biden, in all his inclusive glory, chose to honor the day even though it fell on the same date as Easter Sunday, Republicans were quick to voice their disapproval.

    The criticism failed to overshadow the significance of the day, however. For those in the dark, the TDOV is not a rebooted Easter event, but simply a notable occasion that happened to align with the religious holiday. Love was certainly still in the air, even with the political bickering.

    In his life and career, Joe Biden has remained a steadfast ally of the LGBTQ+ community. His work has been consistent towards advancing equal rights, respect, and acceptance – including the landmark move of demanding safety and equality for transgender people, a first in the presidential inaugural speech history.

    As a gay writer, I can’t help but appreciate the President’s stand, asserting the visibility and importance of transgender people in society. The criticism only seems to highlight the pervasive issue of misunderstanding and misrepresentation within certain politics. Now more than ever, it reminds us of the importance to rally together in support of love, inclusivity, and equality.

    Let’s remember: whoever we love, however we identify, we all deserve to feel validated, seen, and respected. Transgender Day of Visibility might have been on an egg-centric day this year, but its message was loud and clear: visibility shouldn’t and wouldn’t be dampened by chance.
