Abstract

Trans citizenship concerns the rights and responsibilities that trans people have across a range of different social spheres, including the law, politics, health care, cultural representation, and the wider society. The concept of trans citizenship allows us to think about universal trans rights, such as the right for a trans person to determine their identity, to have choices about their body, and to live as an equal citizen to cisgender (cis) people. It also enables us to think about the issues facing specific groups of trans people, such as trans people of color, trans people who are nonbinary, and/or trans people living in a country where violence against trans people is particularly severe.
