Erika Castellanos

Erika Castellanos is committed to the empowerment of trans, gender diverse and intersex communities. Erika started her activism on HIV and sex workers issues and has lived expertise as a person living with HIV, sex worker, drug use, incarcerated and migrant. Erika uses her diverse background to connect with and support communities who are under-served. She is a social worker, studied LGBTI health research at the University of Pittsburgh and is currently pursuing advancing her education in public health.

Trans United Europe is a sex worker umbrella NGO for Trans Black People of Color (BPOC) and migrants from the global south. TUEU currently has sister organizations and safe spaces in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Brussels, Paris, and Barcelona. The BPOC trans organizations run important community and peer-led HIV and STI prevention programs that include HRT care by our doctors. We combine HRT care with HIV prevention including PREP and redirection to academic HIV Care centers. BPOC trans people are also active in anti-racism activism. In addition to her involvement at Trans United Europe, Erika is engaged in multiple platforms in various capacities, including the Communities Delegation to the Board of the Global Fund, her work at Global Action for Trans Equality and participation in peer-review granting bodies.
