International Day of Action for Trans Depathologisation

22 October

 

Every October, activist groups worldwide organize activities for trans depathologization to demand the removal of the diagnostic classification of gender transition as a ‘mental disorder’ and to claim state-funded access to a trans health care of the highest attainable quality. Other relevant demands include the removal of the diagnostic classification of gender diversity in childhood, a shift in trans health care from the current assessment model to one based on informed decision making, the legal recognition of name and gender marker without medical requirements, as well as the protection of trans people against discrimination and transphobic violence. Taken from STP2012.
