Injustice Exposed: The Criminalisation of Transgender People and its Impacts

This report analyses the history, extent and nature of laws around the world which,
through their existence and/or application, criminalise transgender and gender diverse

people. The purpose of this report is to identify these laws, highlight particular examples

of their enforcement, and examine how their mere existence renders trans and gender

diverse people criminals by virtue of their gender identity and/or gender expression. The

report also explores how these laws, through their existence and/or application, violate

international human rights standards and norms.
