QET Inclusion was created in December 2015 to help improve the conditions related to gender identities and expressions, especially among trans* people in Côte d’Ivoire. Its vision is a society inclusive of differences respecting democratic principles and foundations while promoting human rights. Its mission is to promote intersectional feminism and respect for human rights, to combat all forms of discrimination and violence against individuals on the basis of their identity and / or gender expression, prioritize psycho-medical needs and social integration of gender identity, promote family reintegration and social inclusion, and also to combat the proliferation of HIV / AIDS among gender minorities and sex workers.
For the group, one of the biggest achievements has been to have succeeded in putting the first exclusively trans* movement in place, throughout Francophone Africa. “But, above all, we are proud to contribute to the strengthening of self-esteem and valorisation of our identities,” they say.
