Human Rights and the Revolution in Transgender Rights

Human Rights and the Revolution in Transgender Rights

The fight for transgender rights has been long, and we’re still yet to achieve full equality.

The International Transgender Day of Visibility is dedicated to celebrating trans people and raising awareness of the discrimination that the community faces on a daily basis.

Human rights are a crucial tool in this fight, helping to increase equality and gender recognition – for example, ensuring transgender people have the right to marry and claim a pension in line with their identity.

Please share this video on why we need to keep fighting for transgender rights.
