►  46% of students face job discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

30% of LGBTQIA+ individuals face discrimination by family members, in school, while using public transportation, in hospitals, and while walking in the streets.

► Between 30-40% of transgender individuals are denied housing.

► 1 in 5 people with non-normative gender identities surveyed by Mexico’s National Human Rights Comission have attempted suicide.
