What we've been up to
International Transgender Day of Visibility (also called TDOV, Transgender Day of Visibility) is an annual event occurring on March 31dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society. The day was founded by transgender activist Rachel Crandall of Michigan in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of LGBT recognition of transgender people, citing the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centered day was the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which mourned the murders of transgender people, but did not acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community. The first International Transgender Day of Visibility was held on March 31, 2009. It has since been spearheaded by the U.S.-based youth advocacy organization Trans Student Educational Resources

Clothes and community service
Yesterday was the 5th Annual The Big Event: A Saluki Day of Service, the largest one-day, student-run service project in the history of SIU Carbondale. This year several students volunteered their Saturday to assist our very own Sister Gay B*tch Milkshake with her amazing Novice project and helped organize all the clothes donated over the last few months for the Rainbow Cafe Clothing Closet.
All the remaining clothes that were not selected will now find their ways to such events as Transition Your Closet that Sister Mothra Stewart is working as well as Rainbow Cafe's yard sale happening in May and House of Hope to be sold in their thrift store.
Our first Novice project officially finished! Thank you so much to the students who worked with us today, and to our community for being so generous with their gently used items!
On the 31st we take to the streets to we and our community advocate for our transgender siblings. Join us!
