GATE and TGEU sent a joint submission to the Expert Council on NGO law concerning the way some NGOs are treated less favorably; specifically, NGOs and (unregistered) activist collectives focused on trans, gender diverse, and intersex (TGDI) rights, as well as the broader lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) communities. The submission concludes by signaling that anti-gender opposition negatively impacts pro-TGD/LGBTQI rights groupsability to operate and advocate for positive changes, with psycho-emotional stress and burnout among staff, board, and/or volunteers being the leading vulnerability.
