Iran: Being lesbian and trans in Iran

OutRight Action International, the global LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer) human rights organization, has released a groundbreaking report: Transgender in Iran: A Human Rights Report, which sheds light on the complicated status of trans rights and how they intersect with religion and social attitudes in the country.

This report was developed through interviews with 34 trans Iranians, within and outside Iran, as well as through research into a wide range of text-based sources and through limited responses from the Iranian government.
