Invisible Men’s Founder Luckie Alexander’s Website Created for The National Trans Visibility March Recognized by The Library of Congress
NEW YORK, July 2019 — The #March4TransEquality is now officially recognized as a part of LGBTQ+ history. The United States Library of Congress selected the website for inclusion in the library’s historic collection of internet materials related to the LGBTQ+ Politics & Political Candidates Web Archives. The United States Library of Congress considers http://www.transmarchondc.org to be an important part of this collection and the historical record. Luckie Alexander Founder of InvisibleTMen.com created the historical site for the National Trans Visibility March as a volunteer effort.
InvisibleTMen.com is a platform created for Transmen of all walks of life to share their own narratives in their own words. Transmen and transmasculine folks of color are unapologetically centered. This space is designed as a platform to explore Transmasculine visibility and how they are seen or not within the community and the world; to the mainstream society they are almost nonexistent.
The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library’s traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. Our web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.
The National Trans Visibility March takes place on September 28, 2019. The March is of a critical importance at this time. With the Equality Act of 2019 being threatened by the Senate and the trans military ban implementation, there is a need to mobilize America to recognize and fight for the rights of TGNC/NB people. Although the current administration has intentionally rolled back efforts to prevent inclusion of transgender communities in the US census, individuals from the TGNC/NB communities have mobilized and issued a call to action to dismantle the social structures that have oppressed and disenfranchised the TGNC/NB community.
