Tajassod-Qorras

Tajassod is a trans embodiment project that focuses on bringing forward information for trans individuals to try to have a healthier and safer future in their “homes”.

Tajassod is a trans embodiment initiative that focuses on bringing forward information for trans individuals to try to have a healthier and safer future in their “homes”. It functions through two strategies: information availability and practical networking. The idea of Tajassod was born in November 2016 out of a need for information and a support network for a trans activist when he started hormone treatment. Despite being an established activist with access to language, internet, lawyers and organizations that cater to trans individuals, many gaps arose. Tajassod’s goal is to enable the trans community to have access to transition procedures, treatment and information locally without them having to migrate/travel from Lebanon to seek friendly and informed medical interventions. It also aims to increase visibility for trans-organized initiatives and integration of trans politics in the civil society in Lebanon. Tajassod is housed by Qorras, which is a relatively new group aimed at politicizing the access to information and creating spaces for mutual learning around gender and sexuality.
