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.

GATE was initially founded as a trans network to coordinate, facilitate and advocate for a united trans movement globally.

Our mission is working towards justice and equality for trans, gender diverse, and intersex communities.

We take pride in being an international organization that is led by trans, gender diverse, and intersex staff and board members from all regions of the world.

GATE works with international decision-making and funding mechanisms including WHO, UNAIDS and The Global Fund, as well as engaging at the UN Human Rights Council to bring awareness of and engagement with TDGI issues at the global level.

Our work falls under three strategic programmatic areas: Human Rights, Health, and Movement Building.
