Abstract: In this paper, the literature on global transgender hate crimes, violence, and abuse is reviewed. It is pointed out that it is possible to infer that this problem is not localized to the United States but rather, represents a global pandemic of focused prejudice. It can be viewed not only as an extremely serious and immediate public health problem, but also as genocide against a consistently invisibilized minority population. Concrete examples from the researchers’ field studies as well as from the published literature are provided.
