On May 27, The National Center for Transgender Equality, in partnership with the TRANSContinental Run, hosted two events for the trans community and allies in Texas. We kicked off the day with the Trot for Trans Lives - a 5k run - and the Championing Change panel, which brought activists from across Texas to build power, fight back against those and create a space where we can center and uplift the needs of trans Texans.

For Trans Day of Visibility 2023, we've released a video celebrating trans joy and featuring four voices from our trans community! Hailing from around the country — Nebraska, Maryland, Georgia, and Texas — Marcus, Jamy, Dionne, and Damien speak about how they find their joy even in these challenging and uncertain times.
Our joy is especially important right now at a time when trans people are under attack from politicians around the country seeking to do us harm, scapegoat our community, and erase us from society. Legislators seek to strip away our right to receive health care, participate in sports, express ourselves, learn about our histories, and more.
The Biden-Harris Administration announced today it is implementing policy changes that we've been advocating for since NCTE was founded. Here are changes trans people will see to passports, TSA, social security, and more.
