Audrey Mbugua

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, the High Court of Kenya ordered The National Council of NGOs to officially register and recognize TEA and pay its legal fees as a result of Mbugua’s efforts. Later that year, Mbugua won a landmark case wherein 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 of 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.
