Who We Are

Tranz Network Uganda (TNU) is an indigenous not for profit umbrella organization for transgender and gender diverse persons organizations in Uganda.  TNU was established in July 2014 with the aim of supporting coordination and collaboration among trans and gender diverse persons’ organizations.

Trans and gender diverse persons in Uganda are often socially, economically, politically and legally marginalized. Discrimination against trans and gender diverse persons largely stems from multiple forms of stigma relating to gender identity, gender expression and perceived sexual orientation. Stigma, discrimination and lack of legally authorized or gender-appropriate identity documents exclude many trans and gender diverse persons from civic participation, limit economic opportunities and results into poverty and marginalization which increase vulnerability.  Discrimination against transgender people exposes them to violence yet in reporting these violations to the police; transgender survivors sometimes experience further physical violence at the hands of the police who are meant to protect them.

Criminalization of sexual relations between people of the same sex under the Penal Code Act of Uganda, coupled with lack of legal recognition of their gender means that transgender people are legally considered to have engaged in same-sex relations and are, therefore, subject to persecution.
