Advancing trans movementsTrans* and intersex movements are rapidly growing and their advocacy is influencing issues and policies around the world. This has drawn increased funding attention.

Recognizing the need for better coordination and collaboration between donors and activists, Global Action for Trans* Equality, the Open Society Foundations, and Wellspring Advisors partnered to host a meeting for funders and activists working on gender diversity in December of 2013 in Berlin. Twenty-two trans* and intersex activists came together with 24 foundation and bilateral donors to learn, network, and together identify ways to better collaborate and coordinate to advance the rights of trans* and intersex people. 

This report captures the discussions and outcomes. It includes concrete recommendations to improve donors’ approaches to funding, as well as ideas about how to collaboratively and strategically support trans* and intersex movements. It also documents the methodology of organizing a donor and activist convening in a collaborative manner. A collaborative process results in a meeting that is more relevant and that builds the capacity of both donors and activists.

Trans healt and human rightsDecember 2013, 36 pages

This discussion paper aims to increase understanding of the human rights issues that trans people face, and the priority actions required to secure trans people’s right to dignity, equality, health and security. It focuses predominantly on the rights to health, to legal gender recognition and to freedom from violence and discrimination. Trans people have consistently identifi ed these rights as key priorities. Traversing these issues is essential to addressing the underlying structural factors that marginalize trans people, negatively impact their health and exclude them from the benefi ts of development.

This paper was written for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to inform its work, and that of other UN agencies, including with local trans communities. It draws on the experiences of trans people around the world, and suggests practical actions that UN staff can take to be more inclusive of trans people, both in daily interactions and in their broader work, particularly in the areas of health, HIV, the rule of law and development.
