Refers to the public visibility of marginalized people including on TV, in movies, in music, in the news, in government, etc. Representation is important for both the individual, in that they’re seeing stories that could be their own, for the community, in that they’re being acknowledged for existing, and for the greater society, in that they’re recognizing that their stories aren’t the only ones that exist.
e.g. Maria liked to ask shop keepers if they knew of any books with trans representation.
