Transgender initiative Alma-TQ is pleased to announce the release of a report based on the data of the research "Living our lives unseen", dedicated to the lived realities of transgender people in Kazakhstan. The research was conducted in 2020.


The goal of this research is to identify and describe the realities of transgender people’s existence in Kazakhstan by examining processes related to gender affirmation and recognition, such as legal gender recognition, access to services related to transgender transition, protection from discrimination and violence, and acceptance by their social environment. This is accompanied by identifying and describing the significance, accessibility, and impact of these processes on various aspects of transgender people’s lives.
