Transcontinental Perspectives on Trans-struggles

Trans* lawfare is increasingly visible – and diverse – on all continents. The nature of the battles, and their relationships to other LGBTIQ-struggles (lesbian, gay, bi- and intersex, queer) differ radically both between and within societies. Some – even highly homophobic – societies have a tradition of recognising (certain) transgender identities. Elsewhere trans* people are the most targeted by violence. How important are international and inter-group alliances for the trans* lawfare that we currently see?
