Trevor Project is "Sharing Space" to Celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility

BY: Trevor News
Sharing Space group moderated by Daniel Radcliffe

In light of the record number of anti-LGBTQ – and specifically, anti-trans – bills across the country, The Trevor Project believes trans and nonbinary young people should be able to tell their own stories. To mark Transgender Day of Visibility (celebrated each year on March 31st), we’re launching the first episode of “Sharing Space,” our new video series featuring roundtable-style conversations with LGBTQ youth moderated by curious, open-minded adults and allies. The first episode of this educational series is moderated by longtime supporter of The Trevor Project, Daniel Radcliffe.

“We listen to so many people talk about trans youth and hear them talked about so often in the news, but very rarely do we actually hear from these youth directly,” Radcliffe says about the first episode. “It was an absolute privilege to get to meet and listen to this incredible group of young people. At the end of the day, if you’re going to talk about trans kids, it might be useful to actually listen to trans kids.”

“Sharing Space” will drop new episodes throughout the year, and each episode will feature a different theme, host, and group of LGBTQ young people.  The first episode of “Sharing Space” features six transgender and nonbinary young people who sit down with Radcliffe to have a candid conversation about their personal journeys and lived experiences. A vocal advocate for LGBTQ rights, Radcliffe helps facilitate a heartfelt discussion exploring topics such as gender euphoria, respecting pronouns, self-discovery, and what genuine allyship looks like.

“Sharing Space” provides a much-needed platform for young trans and nonbinary voices, bringing humanity to identities that are often marginalized, misunderstood, and weaponized in political spheres. Today marks Trans Day of Visibility, a time to listen to and affirm trans young people in our lives. Take the time to watch our first episode of the series and hear from trans and nonbinary young people about how we can all be better allies today – and all year round.

What Trevor Learned on the Ground at the Walkouts and Rallies in Florida

We know that so many of you are exhausted, demoralized, and angry about the record number of anti-LGBTQ bills being introduced in state houses across the nation. Every time we hear fresh news of another one of over 500 harmful bills this year, we at Trevor feel despondent. The common sense idea of freedom – the freedom to parent, treat patients, express oneself, talk about one’s life at school – is under attack by politicians more focused on optics than standing up for their constituents. It’s easy to feel hopeless, and I was starting to feel that way. We knew…
