Every year on International Women’s Day we are reminded that we still live in a world where most women are left behind. This is especially true for LBTI people who face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination daily. Patriarchy, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia are all intricately linked, oppressing and marginalizing LBTI people, resulting in exclusion and violence in the domestic and public sphere. Immense social pressure to conform to gender roles forces many into hiding and silence, invisibilizing their experiences of subjugation and discrimination.
