Launching Report of Caribbean Trans Survey

We are preparing the launching of the Final Report of Caribbean Trans Survey that was disseminated throughout the Caribbean on International Transgender Day of Visibility which is an annual event occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society. In most countries in the Caribbean, there is no legal recognition of transgender people’s affirmed gender identity. Without official documents that recognize their gender identity, transgender people are often denied access to basic rights, including the right to health, education, justice, and social welfare. This often results in exclusion from social and civic participation, harassment and stigmatization, limited access to protection, justice and redress as well as inadequate provision of healthcare services. Transgender people are also more susceptible to violence, including physical and sexual violence.
