La transfobia no solo se evidencia en el asesinato de más de 30 trans en Colombia en 2012 y la falta información a la sociedad, sino también en otras formas en que los crímenes de odio hacen de sus víctimas a las travestis y transexuales, especialmente a quienes transitan de las masculinidades a las feminidades. Ante tal violencia ellas mismas se organizan, las ONG denuncian y el Estado ofrece algunas alternativas; por otra parte tan bien es vedad que sobre el tema muchos/as no saben sobre qué se está hablando.
