Casa Chama


Casa Chama is a civil society organisation that advocates for the rights of the trans population in Brazil by denouncing the ongoing human rights violations this community faces. Casa Chama offers their assistance to members in areas such as healthcare, housing, employability, culture, education and security. Currently, there are approximately fifty trans people availing of the services provided by the organisation. Additionally, around 210 trans people are monitored by the organisation remotely; 90% of whom are living in the city of São Paulo and 85% of whom are in a situation of profound social vulnerability. During COVID-19, Casa Chama held more than 2000 appointments to assist trans people in understand and exercising their rights.


Brazil continues to be an extremely dangerous place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTi) rights defenders as it maintains the top position in the world ranking of homophobic murders, registering 44% of all killings worldwide.
