Lighting up the entire month of March, Transgender Victoria (TGV) is celebrating visibility like never before. Opening with a national online campaign via the newly launched platform tdov.org.au, and closing with a broad-ranging day of activities at Hares & Hyenas on 31 March 2019 (International Trans Day of Visibility), TGV is taking its services to a new level to meet a clear demand from the community.

​Trans Pride Lanyards

Quote - Theodore Murray

“There is so much happening at TGV at the moment. Our public engagement has never been higher, and our communities continue to demand more colour, more diversity, more participation. So we’re raising the bar to give it to them, and call for action at the same time. The question is: would you like to join us?”

– Theodore Murray, TGV Events Manager and TDOV Campaign Co-Manager.
