Gender DynamiX (GDX) and their partner in East Africa as co-hosts of the Eastern and Southern African Trans and Intersex Regional Exchange Programme, approached Transgender and Intersex Africa (TIA) to form a 3-organisation coalition, which would be known as Transitioning Africa (TA). The coalition would work together on future projects advocating for the human rights of transgender and intersex people in sub-Saharan Africa.  The founding meeting was held in Nairobi, Kenya.
