About

Since around 2018, it has become an increasingly common tactic for anti-trans advocacy groups, conversion therapy organisations and the religious right to send out large scale propaganda and disinformation material to schools, community groups and other spaces, with a view to stirring up anxiety and fear about the trans community.

In addition to this, multiple campaigns have been observed of deliberately misleading stickers being placed in public view in order to either intimidate trans people or disturb the public into retaliating against trans individuals.

Trans Safety Network is an initiative to gather data on anti-transgender hate materials and track these sorts of campaigns, in order to understand their prevalence and impact, as well as raise awareness about them, and reveal these for what they are.
