  • International Trans Day of Visibility

    Transgender people are much more likely to experience violence than cisgender people (cisgender means your gender identity is the same as the sex you had at birth). One study found that on average trans people experienced 4 times more violence than cisgender people. Another study based here in the UK found that 4 out of 5 trans people have experienced a hate crime between 2019 and 2020 and half of trans people have experienced an attack in the street. 70% of the people in this same study said this transphobia has been detrimental to their mental health and more than half had contemplated suicide.
