Across the world, the health of transgender people is essentially invisible. In Brazil, it’s even worse, because excluding trans health is a government platform without guidelines for trans people that was put under the Ministry of Family, whose minister said during the inauguration: “It’s a new era in Brazil, boys wear blue and girls wear pink."
For 13 years in a row, Brazil is where more trans people die than anywhere else in the world.
- 89% of trans people can't afford healthcare
- 62% use hormones on their own
- 47% have depression
