dc.description.abstract The aim of the chapter is to engage with historic and contemporary forms of trans resistance and activism and to understand the ways in which the trans movement in South Africa intersects with other social movements. The chapter engages with the historical background, the ongoing invisibility of trans people, the politics of the tensions between trans activism and sexual orientation activism, and the importance of intersectional understandings of trans experience. The chapter also engages the historical and political arc of trans identities and the trans movement from which global North histories differ those in the global South. en
