Whoever decided that the best day for the Transgender Day of Visibility should be on April Fools, the day known for pulling tricks and things not being what they seem, should be fired from ever making those decisions. I can't think of a worse day to pick, considering all the negative stereotypes the transgedered community faces. It just doesn't make any sense.

Hey anonymous, I feel your anger but a little correction is in order. Transgender Day of Visibility is not on April Fool's Day. It is on March 31, the day before April Fool's Day.
