The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS and the Asia Pacific Transgender Network marked Zero Discrimination Day on March 1 with a video designed to boost transgender awareness worldwide.

Last week, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS and the Asia Pacific Transgender Network released a video intended to raise awareness of the issues facing many transgender individuals, including access to housing and medical care, and highlighting the general discrimination many trans people face.

The video, titled, "Transgender Rights are Human Rights," was created to commemorate Zero Discrimination Day, which UNAIDS describes as "an opportunity to celebrate everyone's right to live a full and productive life with dignity."

The video highlights 21 transgender men and women from various regions of Asia and the Pacific, allowing each to tell a story of discrimination and state their hopes for a better future, free of discrimination.
