Our Right To Be

30 / 01 / 20

After decades of military dictatorship, many people in Myanmar have stopped believing in justice.

MyJustice, an EU funded flagship project, partners with local organisations to bring justice back to the most vulnerable groups in Myanmar.

Worldwide, the LGBTI community belongs among one of the most marginalised groups. Also in Myanmar, laws criminalise and restrict LGBTI people from expressing their identity. Often, they are victim of physical, psychological, mental and sexual abuse – at home and in public.

We meet with the LGBTI community in Mandalay, Myanmar, where activists and victims of gender based violence share with us what justice means to them and the ways they are striving to improve access to Justice for their fellow LGBTI community.

This is a painful story, but also a story of togetherness, healing and searching for ways forward in order to give hope to future generations of LGBTI. It’s a story of changing public opinions and laws that prevent people from being who they are.
