Transgender Awareness Week is a time to lift up the voices and experiences of transgender, nonbinary, gender-diverse, and gender nonconforming people and raise awareness of issues that affect their communities. Transgender Awareness Week leads up to the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which honors the memory of those who lost their lives to transphobic violence.

Every day, more trans people and allies are speaking out, inspiring others to show up as their true selves, and fighting back against transphobia/transmisia — including the recent wave of anti-trans harassment and laws that harm trans people, especially targeting trans youth. Gender identity isn’t a fad, talking point, or political stance. Everyone deserves to live an authentic life free of discrimination, hatred, and violence.

We’re proud to stand with transgender, nonbinary, gender-diverse, and gender nonconforming communities. Whether you’re trying to learn the basics about gender identity, are seeking information about transitioning and gender-affirming health care, want to support your trans and gender nonconforming friends, family, and kids, or are a young person looking for information or resources — Planned Parenthood is here for you
