What is ‘QTIBPOC’?

Trans people come in all shapes and sizes, across all ages, cultures, genders, faiths, spiritualities, bodies, and backgrounds. There’s no one way to be trans.

Unfortunately Trans Indigenous, Black and People of Colour can experience discrimination at higher rates than their peers. Research tells us how enormous the impact of a supportive environment, the role friends and loved ones play, and the difference being safe and respected makes.

VACCHO and Transgender Victoria have come together to create this downloadable resource that enables us to be more informed about Trans Indigenous, Black and People of Colour, and be part of creating more inclusive spaces in a meaningful and impactful way.
