European Transgender Coalition Registered


TransGender Europe, a new coalition of 66 transgender and transsexual organizations in 21 nations, was officially registered by Austrian authorities this month.

“This is a major milestone towards the recognition of the rights of transgender people,” said Chairperson Justus Eisfeld. “Now TransGender Europe can apply for funding and make our voices heard on an international level.”

The group plans to fight for “legal recognition of the gender of trans people in the gender they live in, as well as nondiscrimination in all aspects of life, equal access to health care, and social acceptance.”
