How can you support trans people in Kenya?

Harassment on the street, discrimination that prevents you from getting a job, and a transphobic landlord. All things that could easily affect a UK based trans person.

Those of experiencing housing discrimination can, in theory, seek support to challenge the discrimination that the Equality Act protects us from.

In Kenya there isn’t a law to protect trans people from discrimination, in fact trans people are impacted by the homophobic, biphobic and transphobic laws that were originally imposed under colonial rule.
