We are excited to share some important updates about Global Action for Trans* Equality with you. As we previously announced, Justus Eisfeld recently left GATE to pursue other opportunities. Given Justus’ tremendous contribution to GATE’s work, his departure undoubtedly represents a political and institutional challenge for us. However, this transition also presents an opportune moment for building a renovated and stronger version of GATE.
Since we formed the organization in 2009, GATE has played a key role introducing trans* issues at the international level, promoting meaningful trans* involvement in international processes, advocating for the expansion of available funds to support trans* activism, and producing and sharing critical knowledge on trans* issues.
