On this day of International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, we at Dynamic Initiative for HealthCare & Human Rights stand in solidarity to remind the world that the LGBTQIA+ exist. Moreso, we remind Nigeria as a country that Transgender, Intersex and Nonconforming individuals are here to stay and we will continue to demand our rights as individuals of this nation. To our dear friends and allies, we thank you for standing with us.
A few reminders:
- Stop being transphobic
- Intersex people exist
- Trans women are women
- Gender-based violence must stop
- Stop Intimate Partner Violence
- Patriarchy is the root cause for both misogyny and transphobia
- Educate yourself constantly
Together, we can make change…
Today, Dynamic Initiative for Healthcare and Human Rights recognize and celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) in Nigeria even in the midst of a pandemic (COVID-19) and a must lock-down happening all over the world.
We are grateful that the trans community as a whole is becoming more visible in Nigeria as well as the push for acceptance and respect. We are saying that “We are valid and We are here”.
As an organization in Nigeria, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive workplace for everyone and we are proud to be celebrating TDOV today with our DIHHR family and beyond.
At the same time, we recognize that visibility isn’t everything. Your gender is real whether or not it is seen by others. We see you!!!
