Abstract


  • Recently, the Human Rights Commission of New Zealand has

    conducted an inquiry that has officially documented the obstacles to

    dignity, equality and security for trans people. The Australian Human

    Rights Commission has also recently conducted a sex and gender

    diversity project, and in 2006 the Equalities Review in the United

    Kingdom commissioned the largest research project ever untaken

    globally on trans peoples lives, reported in Engendered Penalties:

    Transgender and Transsexual Peoples Experiences of Inequality and

    Discrimination. This article reflects on the implications of the issues

    raised by these recent reports and research for transgendered people

    immigrating to and from New Zealand. It also raises some parallel

    issues for Australia.
