Today is International Transgender Day

International Transgender Day
We honor and celebrate the transgender people within our community on this day of visibility!

It’s important to start by remembering how much progress has been made on the issue of transgender rights in recent decades. The majority of Americans say they would favor laws that protect transgender people from discrimination in employment, housing, and public spaces. At least 21 states and D.C. have laws that prevent discrimination. However, the troubling rise in anti-trans legislation in recent years is evidence there is a long way to go toward equality.

At I Heart SapphFic, we support our transgender readers and authors and are committed to making sapphic transgender stories easy for readers to find. Whether an author or character is transmasculine or transfeminine, we welcome your sapphic stories and value you as a member of this community. We want this to be a safe space for all sapphic people.

Today we are highlighting three sapphic books with a main character who is transgender. Here are even more transgender stories.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
