September 23, 2017 @ 15:00 - 17:00
(A forum discussing hate crime & violence towards trans and gender diverse persons)At least 12 cases of murder of trans women have been reported in the media between 2007 and 2017. In 2017 alone, 3 cases of murder of trans women have been reported.
Between 2011 – 2017, the media has reported a number of cases of hate crime towards trans women from the attacks by gangsters in Pahang in 2011, physical attacks experienced by Nisha Ayub, and the stabbing of a Thai trans women in Penang. However, these are just reported cases. Many more cases are misreported or are unreported altogether.
In light of these continuing trend of violence, how do we create an environment that is safe and affirming of everyone? Join our panel for a discussion on gender-based violence and the increased vulnerabilities faced by diverse groups based on gender.
