TransR – Trans Sex Workers Rights are Human Rights

The project “TransR – Trans Sex Workers Rights are Human Rights” aims to contribute to the fulfillment, respect and protection of trans sex workers’ (TSW) fundamental rights, through concerted actions that focus on the individuals, but also both at the circumstances and the key-actors that prevent TSW from having optimal physical and psychological health.

The project “TransR” is a transnational programme including the implementation of various interventions among 5 countries: Portugal, Spain, Austria, Italy & Greece in 2018-2019. It is funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme of the European Union.

The TransR project has 4 main objectives:

  • Increase informed and effective interventions
  • Enable a tolerant and respectful environment for trans sex workers (TSW)
  • Empower TSW
  • Improve skills among professionals and stakeholders affecting TSW lives

According to evidence, trans communities are still struggling to achieve equal rights and they often experience an environment that is less tolerant towards them with high levels of violence and discrimination at European level. Within trans community, the group of trans sex workers is particularly vulnerable to social and public health harms.
