Learn about us

GATE believes in the emancipatory power of trans, gender diverse and intersex activists.

We provide our communities with support, technical capacity and knowledge to enable them to politically mobilize on issues of gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.


We produce and share critical knowledge, advocate for increased and more accessible funding for community-led efforts, monitor key international processes and facilitate community activists’ engagement with these processes.

We are committed to being fully accountable to our communities, to fighting for all forms of emancipation, justice and reparations, and to supporting activists’ development and wellbeing.


We are focused on the revision of trans, gender diverse and intersex codes in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) and on promoting depathologization through legal reform.
