DRAFT LAW ON THE LEGAL RECOGNITION OF GENDER IDENTITY


With its announcement on June 9 2017, the for Racist Violence Recording Network welcomes the legislative initiative on legal recognition of gender identity as an important step in fulfilling the state’s commitment to drastically curb discrimination based on gender identity. As the Network has already argued, legal recognition of gender identity will solve many of the practical problems transgender people face in their daily lives and will facilitate their access to justice.

The Network asks the State to take seriously the individual comments and proposals of the organizations directly concerned and to prioritize the effective protection of all individual rights based on the right to gender identity and respect for their personality.
