Kenyan activist and head of Transgender Education and Advocacy

Audrey Mbugua is a Kenyan activist who heads Transgender Education and Advocacy (TEA), an organization that defends the rights of transgender individuals in Kenya. In 2014, Mbugua won a landmark case in which the Kenya National Examinations Council was ordered to legally change Mbugua’s name and remove the existing gender designation on her academic certificates. Mbugua has also advocated for permission for sex reassignment therapy in Kenya by challenging the 2016 health bill. She continues to fight for transgender rights and was nominated for the Human Rights Tulip Award by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2014.
