Transgender Challenges Around the World

Transgender Challenges Around the World has assembled trans warriors that have kept the struggle for change alive. These advocates will get real about the struggles faced in accessing HIV care and services, exclusionary policies, the erasure of trans stories— and how they thrive no matter the surmounting odds. All of this moderated by the eccentric FLUX President, Queen Victoria Ortega!

Girls and young women are taking charge at the AHF Girls Act Global Village booth. Open to the general public, this virtual booth showcases AHF’s transformative initiative to empower girls and young women across 13 countries. Stop by for a chance to chat with our youth advocates and future world leaders!
