Dave Chappelle has a long history of making 'jokes' at the expense of the LGBTQ community. In his new special 'The Closer' he makes a number of degrading jokes aimed at the transgender community.

This comes at a time when transgender community faces a hostile environment right across the world.

2021 is set to be one of the worst years on record, with the Human Rights Campaign already sadly having tracked 38 transgender or non-conforming people in the US who have been fatally shot or killed by other means. Hate crimes against transgender individuals are on the rise, and celebrating transphobic speech contributes directly to violence.

Violence - both fatal and non-fatal - being perpetuated against transgender people worldwide, the transgender community is constantly attacked by media outlets, public figures and politicians.

By providing a platform to Dave Chappelle and his transphobic 'jokes', Netflix is perpetuating violence and hostility towards transgender people.

We call on Netflix to remove the comedy special and commit to ensure that homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic material is not included within your catalogue of films and TV in the future.
