TAKE ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
Tell Paraguay to legally recognize the identity of trans people so they can exercise their rights
Yren and Mariana want to live their lives freely and do things they love, like playing volleyball, dancing and going to the theatre.
However, as trans women, Yren and Mariana are busy defending themselves against discrimination. They have been fighting for years to change their legal names. If they could get documentation that matches who they are, it would mean the state had started to recognize their existence as trans women.
Protesting isn’t easy for trans people in Paraguay, a very conservative country which treats trans people and the wider LGBTI community unfairly. Trans people in Paraguay cannot legally change their names or obtain identity documents that match their gender identity. And protests by trans groups are often banned, and in some cases, demonstrations have been attacked.
Tell Paraguay to legally recognize the identity of trans people so they can exercise their rights.
