The capital city of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Tehran, announced in early March that transgender people should not appear in popular sections of the metropolis. The Tehran city council directive to ostracize transgender people coincides with US President Biden declaring that March 31 is “Transgender Day of Visibility.” The US government-funded news organization Radio Farda reported that Tehran city council spokesman Alireza Nadali said transgender people should not congregate at heavily crowded locations such as the Valiasr Intersection.
