As we enter Transgender Awareness 2014 and the International Transgender Day of Remembrance the Transgender Violence Tracking Portal has been working hard to collect and investigate the data of violence transgender individuals suffer across the world and report out what we are finding. This report details out preliminary findings as to the incident reports that we have received so far this year.
International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) 2014
On May 17th, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia is held annually in many countries around the world. IDAHOT was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policy makers, opinion leaders, social movements, the media, and the public in general to these issues, and to promote a world of tolerance, respect and freedom regardless of people’s sexual orientations or gender identities.
The Transgender Violence Tracking Portal has received 102 reports of transgender anti-violence from January 1st, 2014 to April 30th, 2014 since the opening of the portal in April 2014.
