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.

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.

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.
