US Footballer Megan Rapinoe dedicated her Time’s Woman of the Year honour to the trans community. Over the last few years, numerous states across America have introduced over 300 bills targeting trans and non-binary people.

On 2 March, Tennessee’s Republican governor Bill Lee banned gender-affirming care for trans youth. A couple of months prior, Utah passed a similar anti-trans legislation law.

In addition to the number of hateful bills, violence against trans and non-binary individuals has reached staggering heights.

According to Human Rights Watch, 38 trans people were killed in 2022 due to hatred and bigotry, and most of these deaths were trans women of colour.
