Trans and Refugee – Overlooked Struggles in Southeast Asia and East Africa

A conversation on the trans and LGBTQI situation in East Africa and Southeast Asia.

What is the situation like in Myanmar, Kenya and Uganda for trans and other LGBTQI people? Why are queer people forced to flee? Is there anything we can do to support grassroots movements and activists in these contexts? The seminar is a conversation with Purity Paige, actress, model and trans activist from East Africa, and Yaya Aye Myat, leading trans and human rights activist from Myanmar.
