While South Africa’s constitution is very progressive concerning equality, the LGBTI community still faces discrimination.
Busi Deyi from Gender DynamiX talks us through the troubles transgender and intersex people face when trying to change documentation at Department of Home Affairs.
We discuss the drive to have hate crimes and ‘corrective rape’ recognised in the legal system with Matthew Clayton from the Triangle Project.
And we speak to the LGBTI National Task Team about prioritising cases in the criminal system.
