A 2016 report by the IRGT: A Global Network of Transgender Women and HIV focuses on the transgender women who are  disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS and yet are often excluded from policy, program and funding decisions at national, regional and global levels. Transgender people are likewise at elevated risk of facing stigma, discrimination, and repressive laws and policies that increase their vulnerability to HIV infection and reduce their access to care and treatment services. This report examines  relevant literature and identifies key themes through semi-structured interviews with transgender community activists, civil society organization representatives, and officials from the Global Fund and other major HIV donors.

Mapping digital trans activism2018, 40 pages

A mapping by Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice and Transgender Europe (TGEU) analyzes trans activism in this region in relation to the patterns of digital usage, barriers to free and safe use of the internet, holistic security threats, and resistance strategies to homo/transphobic-motivated censorship, surveillance, and online attacks.

The report includes recommendations to funders, advocates and social media companies, encouraging them to defend and uphold trans rights, and work towards ensuring holistic security for trans activism. This useful advocacy tool also sheds light on the impact of the closing of civil society spaces on trans activism, and the devastating effect that attacks on freedom of expression have on activists in Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

The focus of this report is on trans and gender-diverse sex workers, who make up 62 per cent of the reported killing of trans and gender-diverse people whose profession is known. It is an attempt to further contextualise the data gathered since 2008 from a systemic violence perspective, utilising much needed community-based violence documentation and research carried out in recent years in local contexts and on an international level.
