The Calvert Journal’s Interview with EKHN member “Right Side” TG Organization’s leader Lilit Martirosyan.

The Calvert Journal’s Interview with EKHN member “Right Side” TG Organization’s leader Lilit Martirosyan.

Lilit Martirosyan is a winner of Frida&Edita Sisters Awards from Armenia. Lilit is the founder and president of the first trans organization – the “Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO” in Armenia. She is the first transgender to change her name to a full female name in Armenia. For several years, Lilit has been actively fighting transfobia in Armenia, and this year she also organized the TDOR in Tbilisi. Lilith repeatedly gave interviews to the many-sided topics related to the human rights of trans people in Armenia.
For as long as a year, the NGO “Party of Law” works closely with the Ministry of Justice and as a result, the process of changing the name in Armenia for transgender people has become much easier. The main thing for Lilith is the trance community and their good.

Lilith is also a participant in the II Eurasian Gender Academy.
