An interview with Anastacia Tomson, by Vikar Singh

“5 December 2015 marked Africa’s first-ever Transgender Visibility Day. The initiative aims to fight Transphobia in all its forms and demands that transgender persons across Africa are protected against violence, economic oppression and should enjoy full human rights - including the right to healthcare and full legal protection.

In the interview Anastacia shares some of her thoughts and experiences as a transgender woman, highlights some common misconceptions people have with the trans individuals and challenges we face in overcoming prejudice and transphobia.”
