Trans activist Adel Onodi received death threats but refused to be silenced, using theatre, activism – even the cover of Elle magazine – to stand up for people’s rights.
“It’s very difficult and slow to get change to happen, but it’s in the air. You can feel it, it’s started.” Transgender people in Europe face disproportionate levels of bullying, violence and discrimination, and are still fighting for legal gender recognition – the right to say in law which gender they want to be identified as.
Right across Europe there are people like Adel fighting for their rights to be treated with dignity and respect.
With EU elections around the corner in May, this is the time to make some noise and make yourself heard. Help Adel #TurnItUp by sharing this video and raise your voice for the changes you want to see.
