“We Fight More Than We Sleep”: Shelter Access by Transgender Individuals in Cape Town, South Africa

Recent study on shelter access by transgender individuals in Cape Town, South Africa was carried out for Gender DynamiX by Andrei Ouspenski, Master of Social Work candidate from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Data was generated from a literature review, document analysis, focus group and one on one interviews. Recommendations for future legislature writing, policy making and shelter management were provided.

This research study was made possible due to the commitment of all those who shared their time and experience, most importantly members of the transgender community of Cape Town. The report was edited and reviewed by academics, activists and advocates. It was launched on July 23rd in Cape Town.
