In Southeast Asia, trans people have always been there in our society and culture for hundreds of years, their existence has been visible from time to time.
There are already many attempts of making a safer space for LGBTQ+ siblings all over the countries and advocacy continue to bring the best out of practices to protect and make the environment bring equal human rights for all.
Meanwhile, during this pandemic, there was still an increase in violence and murder case towards trans and gender non-conforming people.
