On Thursday 26 May, in recognition of the national day for the prevention of LGBTIQ+ family violence, we joined with Zoe Belle Gender Collective and Switchboard for a webinar centring on the voices of trans women of colour.
Facilitated by Zoe Belle’s Starlady, three trans women of colour – Amao, Sasja and Carolina – shared their lived experience to start a conversation about:
- men’s violence against trans women, including the learnings from the new resource www.transfemme.com.au,
- the disproportionate level of risk of violence for trans women of colour and sex workers,
- how specialist family violence services can provide culturally safe and inclusive services for trans women.
