The report documents the deep discrimination and multiple challenges facing trans* and intersex people, and the organizing that they are leading worldwide to win their human rights. It also documents the funding of trans* and intersex groups and the challenges and obstacles they face in obtaining resources to carry out their work.

The survey looked at the financial and organizational capacity of trans* and intersex groups around the world, most of which provide critical support and services, including legal aid, health care, advocacy and leadership training. These groups are fighting discriminatory laws, empowering people to become trans* and intersex activists, and educating the public about trans* and intersex issues.
