Institute TransAkcija is a young, feminist, grassroots trans NGO working to advance gender justice in Slovenia. Formed in 2014, they are the first and only trans group in the county. Their goals include addressing the legal and systematic erasure of trans and gender non-conforming people from legislative and social structures, raising visibility and awareness of transgender communities and issues, and building a strong transgender community with diverse leadership. In the short period of their existence, they have established themselves as recognized community advocates. In addition to their core psychosocial service provision and peer-support programs, host annual “TransMisija” conferences during Transgender Awareness Month, bringing together transgender community members, activists, NGOs, academics, professionals and government representatives. They have advocated to broaden regulations for legal gender recognition and achieve the inclusion of gender identity and expression protections in Slovenia’s anti-discrimination laws––the first time these personal circumstances have ever been considered in Slovenia. Recently, they worked with a Canadian trans filmmaker to produce a film called Transgender Life in Slovenia, which is now screening across multiple countries.
