The first effort of its kind, the list intends to shift the coverage of trans issues by focusing on the positive work being accomplished, and providing visibility to those typically underrepresented.

This positive recognition will rightfully occur on March 31st, the International Transgender Day of Visibility, and it will be telecast live and documented to be viewed and celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations in other regions and nations.
