Aggressions against trans people increase
The physical and discriminatory attacks against the collective of trans people in Catalunya grew significantly last year, due, in large part, to the hatred generated in its day by the parliamentary debate in the Congress of Deputies awarded by the Trans Law. It is what he maintained in December the Observatory Against Homophobia in Catalonia (OCH), which registered at the end of 2022 a increase of almost 25% of cases denounced by this group. They were almost one in every four notices detected by the entity, with 56 incidents last year.
Specifically, 19 cases affected trans women, five trans men, 21 are attacks directed at the collective in general, for example the presence of the ultra-Catholic association bus Make yourself heard, and 11 more people who identify as non-binary, that is, they do not identify with either of the two sexes.
