Research on discrimination in Russia

At present, trans people in Russia face daily discrimination in case their appearance and ID do not match.

Since a swift, transparent and accessible legal gender recognition procedure for trans people in Russia does not exist, the process of obtaining a new ID may take up to several years. In this period, transgender people have no choice but to use ID that neither matches their appearance nor reflects their gender identity.

The monitoring research was conducted from December 2015 till June 2016 by the Transgender Legal Defense Project.
Within the framework of the research we collected cases of violation of transgender people’s rights from 2011 till present, focusing our attention mainly on situations of conflict and discrimination caused by the discrepancy between transgender people’s appearance and gender identity and their legal ID.

Our second report is based on the results of the research we undertook in 2016-2017, during which we carried out a detailed analysis of the situation of transgender people in Russian society and documented numerous violations of their rights.

Some examples of cases that were documented during our research include:
– Workplace discrimination, denial of employment;
– Discrimination in public health sector, denial of medical assistance;
– Denial of public, government and commercial services;
– Hate crimes;
– Discrimination in educational sector;
– Family relationships;
– And other cases.
