Being Trans in Asia and the Pacific

These resources have been created by the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) for trans people, their families, friends and colleagues.

There are some huge gaps in the information available to trans people across Asia and the Pacific. APTN asked its members to share the most common questions they are asked in their country. Those issues are covered in the following 7 resources:
1. I think I might be trans
2. Telling others that you are trans
3. Changing your appearance or gender expression
4. Legal transition steps
5. Other legal issues for trans people
6. Medical transition steps
7. Keeping safe and strong

At the end of each resource are contact details for APTN and for the Pacific Sexual Diversity Network. Email them if you want contacts or more detailed information about your country. These fact sheets have links to other resources too, including sections of the Asia and Pacific Trans Health Blueprint that was published in October 2015. It includes information and examples from many countries in the Pacific and in Asia.
