Challenge

There are more then 1,000,000 transgender living in China. We believe that the main problem the transgender community face is that our society has a lot of misunderstanding of transgender issues which leads to discrimination. The pressure and discrimination from the society create a lot of emotional and psychological problem for transgender people. Also, there are barriers in society for transgender people to get proper assistance and rights.

Solution

To address these problems, our center will work on public education, community service and advocacy. Our center will provide emotional and psychological support for the transgender community by offering Gender Care Hotline , counseling service, peer support group, gathering and regular emotional and mental health support workshop. We will also organise seminars and workshops on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity for the general public to raise awareness about LGBTIQ issue in public.

Long-Term Impact

The project aim to create a better life for the 1,000,000 transgender people in China by helping them get proper assistance and rights. The project will raise awareness and educate the Chinese community on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. It will empower the identity of the transgender people and will build up leaders to support the transgender community in China for the long term. We will push forward the LGBTIQ movement in mainland China.
