For comedian Jes Tom (@jesthekid ), #TransDayOfVisibility is about trans and nonbinary people sharing their experiences and celebrating each other. 🏳️‍⚧️⁣

But Jes also knows that although trans joy is real, so are the things that threaten it. “It’s easy to think that trans visibility equals trans rights, when, as we can see from the ongoing debate over healthcare for trans youth here in the US, trans rights are in jeopardy right now.”⁣

“Trans people are extremely diverse, and we have different needs depending on different factors. However, we all deserve free access to healthcare.”⁣
