Violência - Associação Opus Gay denuncia: Transexuais atacados por assaltantes armados
Os referidos indivíduos atacam violentamente as transsexuais que procuram na rua, à noite, com facas e pistolas obrigando-as a entrarem em veículos, que segundo a policia são roubados, e uma vez no interior do automóvel, roubam-lhes todos os bens que possuem, ao mesmo tempo que são violentadas. Depois de roubadas são largadas no meio da rua, algumas delas sem roupa nenhuma. Em 2 semanas já foram atacadas no mesmo local do centro de Lisboa, 4 pessoas: 3 de nacionalidade portuguesa, e uma de nacionalidade brasileira. Uma das agredidas ainda conseguiu fugir e pedir auxílio num café.
Foram apresentadas queixas na PSP e encaminhadas para a Policia Judiciária, onde um dos transfóbicos já foi identificado . A P J tenta a todo custo identificar os que faltam. Torna-se cada vez mais necessário reforçar a lei anti discriminação, de forma a torna-la efectiva para prevenir a violência homofóbica e transfóbica, que persiste.
A Opus Gay mostra-se solidária com a causa LGBT e com as transsexuais agredidas, sendo que uma é sua associada.

Gender identity disorder describes a divided self. You belong psychologically to one gender, physically to the other. Added to the difficulty of being comfortable in your own skin is a sense of utter isolation. Whom can you confide in? Who would understand?

Girls Will Be Boys
Michael Dillon wanted nothing more than to be invisible, to be one of the guys. Problem: he was born with a woman’s body. Everything he did toward realizing his humble dream — the cross-dressing, the hormones and surgeries and the chimera that resulted — pushed it further from his grasp. He went through life as the most visible sort of human being: a physical anomaly. He was the first person on record to undergo surgery (13 operations between 1946 and 1949) to change his gender.
