that you care
Currently, of the 42 countries that make up Latin America and the Caribbean, only 8 have a Gender Identity law. From RedLacTrans we demand the immediate sanction of Gender Identity Laws throughout the region to enjoy historically violated rights.
The Gender Identity Law may allow recognizes the right to gender identity of all people as a human right, interpreting gender identity as: "the internal and individual experience of gender as each person feels it (which can correspond or not to the sex assigned at birth), including the personal experience of the body».
A law so that our self-perceived identities are respected, so that our Trans identities are not pathologized and so that mechanisms are promoted that guarantee us comprehensive access to health, education and registered work. Sign the petition (see link below) to demand before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights that the issue be dealt with in the respective countries of the region.
In the case of GUATEMALA in Central America, Congress shelved initiative #5395, Gender Identity Law in 2018 under pressure from religious movements. In fact, there is a bill, #5940 Law for the protection of children and adolescents due to gender identity disorders, which seeks to pathologize and persecute trans people in the country.
#QueSiTeImporte (That you care) is a regional campaign seeking the approval of a gender identity law throughout Latin America.
