Organização: Opus Gay - EMAEIOT - CIG
(Com um panorama de oradores deste calibre, dois psiquiatras que advogam que 'tem que se dificultar ao máximo. Quem é trans aguenta, quem não é desiste', uma oradora espanhola que nos vai dizer como seria bom se fôssemos espanhóis, uma transexual que vamos a ver como se porta, e um fóbico que apesar de ter sido um pilar na luta LGB, tem tido opiniões transfóbicas, o que se poderá esperar deste "colóquio" onde as vozes das pessoas transexuais continuam a não ter expressão? Quer dizer, como pensam no Hospital de Santa Maria já toda a gente sabe. E vão logo dois. E do Júlio de Matos? E onde estáo as vozes transex a denunciarem casos e factos de discriminação? Parece que a transexualidade é um caso tão psiquiátrico que quem verdadeiramente sabe o que é sê-lo não tem expressão.)
