Trans Day of Visibility Quiz

The International Trans Day of Visibility is on March 31 every year. To celebrate this year’s event, I thought I would put the proselytising to one side and present a quiz. Have fun doing this over a cup of tea.

If you have missed my normal, enthusiastic support for all things trans, then you will find everything I would have liked to have said written here, https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2021/03/23/trans-day-of-visibility-2021-international-transgender-theme-events/

As for the quiz, the choice of answers is at the top followed by the questions. You just have to associate the picture or question with their name and their preferred pronouns. So, if you think that picture 3, is name d) and their preferred pronouns are they/them then write down 3, d, α
