Calendar graphic timetable for TRANSPort Hub

In the Global Village at AIDS 2022, GATE and IRGT in partnership with RED Trans Peru and TGEU are hosting a Trans Networking Zone for trans and gender diverse people and their allies. TRANSport: A TRANS and Gender Diverse Community Re-Engagement Hub aims to provide a space where trans and gender diverse activists, including youth and those living with or affected by HIV, and allies can explore challenges and best practices regarding the needs and priorities of trans and gender diverse people.

The TRANSport Hub provides a safe space to network, share and exchange ideas, experiences, knowledge and strategies to strengthen our communities and local health and HIV responses. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, our activities include themes of economic disparity and resilience.
