Jonitta ; Is Transgender Woman living in Namibia , I carry a background of 6 years LGBTI human rights activist,GBV campaigner. As a Social Legal Justice Advocate in the Equality Rights Africa Organization (erao), I carry major expertise as an observer of serious LGBTI human violations targeting woman and LGBTI People in Africa and hold a denial from state actors. Namibia has about 1,2 Million population of that 65% classified as a middle low-income earner. Namibia has also about 55% of the LGBTI community across different regions of the country, which most of this LGBTI group is made up of people from the most marginalized community background which those of LGBTI take up the largest number of accounted people living in extreme poverty. Though Namibia is known as a democratic country, it still criminalizes same-sex relationships that lead to a constant human rights violation of LGBTI People from public Society. It's imperative to learn that the human rights of those minorities known as LGBTI people are still at risk within the absence of legal protection with holding justices to gender-variant people and no intervention from state support and sometimes no response. Transgender communities are the most victim in the entire LGBTI movement as this group is left without a voice to represent our visibility at the state level. There's also a huge gap in the community to understand the human rights of transgender people and the need of being legally protected for their rights as transgender People. A major group of transgender people still find it very hard to access health services, employment, legal as they're most of the time being rejected or turned away without proper help at the state health facility or at the employment desk as a result of their body representation. The Namibian law doesn't serve on the inclusion of the marginalized community of that gender-variant background and family conflict as most of the transgender group still struggling with family rejection. I'm currently serving as the Executive Director of the Equality Rights Africa Organization (ERAO)
