March 31 is Transgender Day of Visibility — a day dedicated to celebrating and recognizing the resilience and accomplishments of the transgender and non-binary community.
In particular, AGMA celebrates and honors the transgender and non-binary artists who have given so much of their gifts and talents to make the arts better, more inclusive, and more vibrant. AGMA is stronger as a union because of its transgender and non-binary members.
Unfortunately, today is also a day to raise awareness about the violence and inequality transgender and non-binary individuals face on a daily basis. Every person deserves a just and equal life and workplace, free of harassment, violence, and discrimination.
Today we stand in solidarity with our transgender and non-binary friends, loved ones, and colleagues who deserve the basic human right to live their lives openly and authentically.
