LOS ANGELES—Grooby Network/Productions has announced that it is proud to participate in Transgender Awareness Week, which runs from November 12-19, and that it will be highlighting advocates in the trans adult community on Grooby.com.
“We’re participating in Transgender Awareness Week to celebrate those who do charity, advocacy work, or otherwise represent the trans adult community in a great light,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “Advocacy comes in many forms and our goal is to showcase that diversity.”
Transgender Awareness Week runs from November 12-19 and its purpose is to raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people and the issues the community faces. The week leads up to the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on November 20, which honors the memory of the lives lost due to acts of anti-transgender violence.
“While TDOR is a solemn and important event for the LGBTQ community and its allies, we believe that the Transgender Awareness Week is equally important to pay tribute to,” explained Penn. “This week we want to showcase some of the people in our community who are doing amazing work in formal ways or who lead by example.”
