Visibility without rights, safety, education, and liberation means nothing. Making trans people more visible without creating a world where we are protected and allowed to thrive only sets us up for harassment and harm. The problem isn't lack of visibility, the problem is our systemic oppression, the direct attacks on our rights and healthcare, and the prioritising of cis people's opinions over our own lived experiences. Keep your visibility; we want liberation.
