About the project

Tracking Transphobia is a one-year project, conducted throughout 2023 and 2024, aimed at documenting incidents of antitrans hatred and harassment campaigns in “Canada” to better understand how to respond through strategies promoting safety, support, and solidarity. After a long review of literature, the research team, entirely composed of 2S/TNBGD individuals, conducted dozens of interviews with members of organizations and 2S/TNBGD folks who have faced hateful campaigns from the anti-trans movement in recent years. As a result of this research, our brand-new guide and tool, titled Understanding and Fighting Back against the Anti-Trans Movement in “Canada”: A Guide for Trans Communities & Our Allies, not only presents our findings on the phenomenon but also provides solutions and recommendations. Among these, we can mention: not giving up the fight, not backing down; implementing preventive measures (e.g., data management security); and protecting and supporting members of organizations affected by harassment.
