JUST IN: Gov Hochul orders World Trade Center, NY landmarks lit up in trans flag colors on Easter Sunday

"Today we celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility by acknowledging the contributions that members of the transgender community."


On Saturday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul declared March 31, 2024, Transgender Day of Visibility, and announced that state landmarks would be lit up with pink, white, and light blue lights.

In a statement, Hochul said, "Today we celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility by acknowledging the contributions that members of the transgender community have made in New York State and across the country."

“I am proud of the strength transgender New Yorkers display every day and want to make one thing clear: you are always welcome in New York. You are loved," she added.

The landmarks that are to be lit up include One World Trade Center, the Kosciuszko Bridge, The H. Carl McCall SUNY Building, the State Education Building, the Empire State Plaza, Niagra Falls, and others.

In the proclamation, the governor proclaimed the state would stand up for the rights, visibility, and safety of New Yorkers and strengthen measures to protect the "transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary (TGNCNB) community.

This comes as President Biden has taken heat for recognizing "Trans Day of Visibility" while simultaneously banning all displays of religious symbols at its Easter celebration the same day.
