ADVOCACY: KEEP AN EYE
We also highlight the Stop Trans Pathologization – 2012 campaign (STP2012) that advocates for the despathologization of the trans identities (transexual and transgender) and their retirement from the manuals of disorders (the DSM from the American Psychiatric Association, which’s newly revised version is due in 2012, and the CIE from the World Health Organization, due in 2014). The main action of the STP2012 campaign is the simultaneous demonstration, in various cities around the world, every October since 2007. This next October 17th a manifestation will be held against trans pathologization in different parts of the world. The participants of the Latin American Dialogue on Sexuality and Geopolitics, held in August 24-26, 2009 in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, have decided to join the Stop Trans Pathologization – 2012 campaign worldwide. A statement is being prepared that will be soon posted in SPW website and disseminated worldwide.
