  • 25th May 2023, 16:00-17:00 CET

“Trans rights are human rights” is a concept that should not be debatable and should be accepted by all. However, anti-gender actors have been working to undermine this concept by trying to separate trans rights from human rights.

Anti-gender actors have been attempting to mobilize diverse anti-trans rights discourses, including religious and anti-gender narratives, and co-opting feminist principles to dehumanize and exclude trans people from the human rights discourse and fabricate public moral panic regarding progressive pro-trans policies.

GATE hosted a webinar presenting the main findings from our report The Impact of Human Rights Mechanisms on Trans Rights: A Review, discussing how different regional and international human rights mechanisms are dealing with gender identity-related issues.
