National Trans Visibility March Names New Executive Director, President, CEO

National Trans Visibility March (NTVM), an organization dedicated to advocating for and bringing visibility to the Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming communities, has named a new leadership position as they begin preparing for the 2024 Visibility March. The National Trans Visibility March, along with founder Marissa L. Miller, proudly announces the appointment of Hope Giselle as Executive Director, President and CEO of the organization. 


Hope Giselle is a noteworthy figure in the LGBTQ+ community with 11+ years of experience as an activist across various causes. She was the first openly trans woman to receive a Masters in Fine Arts from her alma mater, Alabama State University, where she also helped establish the school’s first LGBT organization. In the workplace, Giselle has been a driving force in championing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and collaborates with a diverse range of clients to ensure the freedom and corporate safety of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. Hope is the Communications Director for GSA Network—a non-profit organization dedicated to helping students establish gay-straight alliances to fight homophobia in schools. She is also the Founder and an active member of the AllowMe Movement and works with organizations like Freedom for All Americans, HRC, and LGBT University to amplify the voices of the LGBTQ+ community.“Hope Giselle’s unwavering dedication to equality for all individuals, particularly those within the transgender and gender non-conforming community, sets a powerful tone for the future of the National Trans Visibility March”, says Founder Marissa L. Miller. “The organization looks forward to the positive impact she will undoubtedly bring to the forefront of the fight for trans rights and visibility.”


Hope Giselle’s appointment is a milestone for the National Trans Visibility March as it enters its 6th year. The march will be heading to Washington DC this year, right before the very crucial National 2024 Election, which is paramount to Trans Rights and Trans Lives. “Her legacy of activism, groundbreaking achievements and commitment to equality make her the perfect leader for this crucial movement,” said advocate, actress and media personality Madison “Ts Madison” Hinton.


The National Trans Visibility March (NTVM) is an organization advocating for the visibility, equality and protection of all Transgender, Gender Nonconforming and Non-Binary (TGNCNB) people across the United States. NTVM each year mobilizes hundreds of thousands who march the streets and online to reaffirm that Trans rights are human rights and call for the abolition of anti-LGBTQ+ laws.
