The trans* project was officially launched in September 2014. This is the first project dedicated to trans* individuals in Lebanon and in the MENA region. The project is based on a needs assessment done with individuals who identify as trans* who reside in Lebanon. This project is conducted in collaboration with the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality.
Marsa recognizes that individuals who identify as trans* have specific health needs. Marsa launched this platform to be more inclusive of individuals who identify as trans*. Like all projects at Marsa, the trans* project has a holistic approach to trans* health. The aim of this pilot project is to provide a better quality of healthcare to individuals who identify as trans* in lebanon. If you are looking for information to better understand yourself, or if you want to learn more about a loved one, we hope this platform will be helpful to you.
This platform aims to provide support for individuals who are questioning their gender identities and to give medical and legal information for individuals residing in Lebanon who identify as trans*.
