Declaration of the II Activists’ Delegation to the International WPATH Symposium in Buenos Aires
In November 2018, 50 intersex, trans and gender diverse activists and allies from more than 20 countries participated in the second Activist Delegation to the International WPATH Symposium in Buenos Aires. Prior to the symposium, the Activists’ Delegation held their own meeting to share, plan and strategize on depathologization worldwide.
The meeting was particularly significant in a context strongly characterized by social and institutional violence against intersex, trans and gender diverse people, and the global rise in attacks from religious and political movements against the so-called “gender ideology”.
Akahatá, GATE, ILGA World and TGEU have brought together 50 intersex, trans and gender diverse activists from around the world to Buenos Aires, Argentina for the 25th WPATH Symposium from 2-6 November 2018. We will be sharing information during the WPATH Symposium about our engagement and actions, so please follow GATE’s social media for updates.
