Trans Awareness Week:

Don't drop the T!


The 3rd PRIDE OFFICE DAY will take place this year on the 14th of November 2024. On the occasion of Trans Awareness Week, we celebrate trans, inter and non-binary gender identities with the aim of giving them visibility and creating more awareness for them. Trans Awareness Week is an important week for the LGBTIQ+ community - and is closely linked to the visibility and recognition of important activists in the queer scene - an important occasion to organise this day together with your LGBTIQ+ employees!


On PRIDE OFFICE DAY® you have the opportunity to celebrate LGBTIQ+ diversity in your company and also create more visibility and give your workforce a special day. The visibility of queer employees is often limited to PRIDE Month. Events are organised, CSDs are attended or rainbow flags are placed in the office. Company logos are often brightly coloured during this time of year to show solidarity with the LGBTIQ+ community. And that's a good thing! PRIDE OFFICE DAY does not just focus measures and campaigns on PRIDE Month. PRIDE OFFICE DAY supports organisations in the implementation of sustainable LGBTIQ+ diversity management. In this way, attention is also paid to the (trans) community outside of PRIDE Month and appreciation is expressed within the organisation.

Details about PRIDE OFFICE DAY ® 

PRIDE OFFICE DAY takes place on a different LGBTIQ+ specific day every year. This year it will take place during Trans Awareness Week, so the focus will be on trans people.

PRIDE OFFICE DAY is an idea and suggestion for our partners to give visibility to LGBTIQ+ on a day outside of PRIDE Month. The partners should organise their own internal event. Together with several partners, we can organise a major campaign and raise awareness of transgender issues.

On PRIDE OFFICE DAY, 14 November, we are offering two gender diversity training sessions in both German and English. You can find more information here.

We would also like to dedicate this day to a queer organisation, which we will list here soon. Last year, 50% of the proceeds went to "Trans-Kinder-Netz e.V." (see below)

About the programme: You can purchase individual tickets or company tickets. We will donate 50% of the ticket proceeds to a queer organisation to help them continue their great work.

We Stay PRIDE members can attend the training free of charge.

A few weeks later, you will receive a report on PRIDE OFFICE DAY. There we will report on the actions of all companies.

Trans Awareness Week

Trans Awareness Week takes place from 13 to 19 November. The week helps to create more visibility for the trans community and to raise awareness outside their own ranks. Organisations, companies, community members, but also political actors launch measures or initiatives with a special focus on trans people.

The week is followed by the "Transgender Day of Remembrance" (20 November 2024), a special day of remembrance for all trans people who experience discrimination, rejection and violence in many areas of life

This is why we are focussing our attention on the trans community and would also like to make a contribution. This week in particular, we can take a closer look at the areas in which trans people experience difficulties and how they can best be supported. The aim is to reduce prejudice, discrimination and microaggressions.

There are many different ways to be an ally for trans people:

  • You can let trans colleagues tell their personal stories (if they want to) to learn more about their lives and better understand their difficulties.
  • Educate yourself in this area: training courses, workshops, further education, etc.
  • Take action when discrimination occurs, i.e. name the discrimination as such, contact those affected and offer your support.
  • Do not just ask for personal information such as operations, coming out, etc.
  • Offer your pronouns and use the pronouns of your counterpart.
  • If possible, use gender-neutral language. This way you include all people.
What is trans?

The word trans is used as an adjective and is therefore always written in lower case, just like other adjectives, e.g. blonde, tall, slow. Trans comes from Latin and means "beyond" or "above" and is understood as a generic term. In relation to gender identities, it specifically means that trans people do not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth. The typical and often criticised way in which a person's gender is assigned, e.g. on official documents, usually happens after birth by simply looking at the genitals and is usually decided by doctors. If a person does not identify with the assigned gender, then there are a variety of gender identities with which the person can best identify: non-binary, genderqueer, agender, etc. or also with one of the binary genders "man" or "woman".

Here it is important to clarify that the designation/indication "trans" is an individual decision of the person concerned, because the identification in this case is the gender identity/gender (i.e. woman, man, non-binary, agender, etc.) and trans primarily only describes the non-conformity with the assigned gender.  

In this context, there are other terms that are also used by affected persons, such as transgender, transsexual or transident.

Incidentally, people who identify with the gender they have been assigned are described as "cis", which is also an adjective meaning "on this side".

Last year, 50% of the proceeds went to "Trans-Kinder-Netz e.V."

Trans-Kinder-Netz e.V.: "TRAKINE"

The Trans-Kinder-Netz was founded in 2012 as a parents' initiative to help other parents of trans children/young people with initial information on the topic of trans identity and to facilitate an exchange between those affected.

ince 2014, Trakine e.V. has been a registered, non-profit association that not only provides parental counselling but also social education work. The association helps to create a better understanding among people in the immediate environment and institutions such as kindergartens, schools and training centres. The aim of the association is to enable trans children to lead a happy life, free from stigmatisation, discrimination and exclusion, and to give them the feeling that they are taken seriously, accepted, valued and loved.

You can also support TRAKINE yourself at any time:
