picture_eu_reportDiscrimination on the grounds of sex, gender identity and gender expression (2012).

This report addresses complex issues related to discrimination on the grounds of gender identity and gender expression, as well as discrimination on grounds of sex vis-à-vis intersex people. The report also clarifies the definitions used in the context of trans discrimination, and the terms used by the community to represent the diversity within it. This study also extensively examines the influence of EU law, including case law, on trans discrimination and provides case studies of national legislation and case-law on gender identity and gender expression discrimination of some Member States where there are promising approaches which can and should serve as models for others to follow.

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.
