Latiyah is a young trans activist-feminist and the founder and Executive Director of Transgenres et Droits a young organisation based in Ivory Coast. She decided to become an activist because she was always passionate by human rights and wanted to fight for the access of trans people to their Humans rights. In 2015, Latiyah had the opportunity to integrate the first trans-led organisation in her country as the communications manager, after she helped to found a second trans-led organisation before founding her own organisation to work essentially on human rights, social justice, and transgender legal recognition. She is also a part of different initiatives working to strengthen the work of West African LGBTIQ+ organisations, and the community’s life conditions.
