APTN, Akahatá, GATE, ILGA, Iranti, RFSL, STP and TGEU celebrate the new Report released by the Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), Victor Madrigal-Borloz. We express our sincere gratitude for his contribution to changing historical marginalization, and for giving trans and gender diverse people’s human rights the careful attention they deserve.
GATE joins today the annual observance of the International Day of Families; whose 2018 theme is Families and inclusive societies. It affirms the role of family and family policies in advancing Sustainable Development Goal 16 on Promoting peaceful and inclusive societies.
On International Day of Families, we call for recognition that families may include intersex infants, children or adults. We call for justice and an end to all forms of violence, torture and discrimination against children born with intersex variations.
This publication is a two page summary of Gender Identity and Human Rights laws and violations globally, drawing on the Yogyakarta Principles definition of gender identity.
