Georgia Beyer was present for the occasion.

The Transgender flag was raised at Parliament’s forecourt to Mark International Transgender Day of Visibility. The world‘a first transgender MP, Georgina Beyer was there to mark the occasion, as was Labour MP and mother of marriage equality Louisa Wall.

Now in its twelfth year, transgender day of visibility was founded in 2009 by US transgender rights activist Rachel Crandall to contrast with the more sombre and reflective transgender Remembrance Day which is held in November.

The theme for 2021’s international Transgender day of visibility was #beseen and transgender and gender diverse people who felt comfortable and confident were encouraged to post a selfie to social media with the hashtag.
