GATE – Global Action for Trans Equality is an international advocacy organization campaigning globally for trans, gender diverse and intersex equality
GATE seeks to ensure that trans, gender diverse, and intersex (TGDI) people can enjoy their human rights and achieve the highest level of health and wellbeing possible. We do this through advocacy, knowledge generation, movement building, and capacity building and training.
GATE focuses on advocating for the human rights of trans, gender diverse, and intersex people, while also playing a pivotal role in strengthening the global trans, gender diverse, and intersex (TGDI) movements through training, capacity building, resource mobilization and political mobilization. Additionally, GATE prioritizes its institutional strengthening to ensure that we can continue to grow and develop as the leading advocacy and expert organization advancing the rights, health, and well-being of trans, gender diverse, and intersex (TGDI) people in a sustainable way.
Founded in 2009 by Justus Eisfeld and Mauro Cabral Grinspan, today GATE remains the only international organization focused on issues relating to gender identity, gender expression, and sex characteristics.
