El Gobierno español comparte la necesidad de descatalogar la transexualidad como un trastorno mental
El pasado 15 de marzo del 2010 el Congreso de los Diputados de España respondía a la pregunta realizada por el diputado Joan Herrera del Grupo Parlamentario de ERCIU-ICV. La pregunta era relativa a la opinión del Gobierno en relación a la catalogación de la transexualidad como un trastorno mental. La respuesta del Gobierno parece ser clara: “El Gobierno español comparte la necesidad de descatalogar la transexualidad como un trastorno mental”.

Comunicado sobre el caso de Roberto, el hombre transexual asesinado en Madrid
ha salido la sentencia. Casi 19 años de prisión. Ahora nos queda el regusto amargo de que siempre nos parezcan pocos los años de condena por un crimen tan brutal. Pero nos preocupa mucho más el para qué va a servir todo esto.

Understanding the 'T' in LGBT
This is a story about the "T" in LGBT. T is for transgender and in my personal LGBT circle, it's probably the least understood.
Let's start with a basic understanding, which much of the population lacks: A transgender person's gender identity does not match their "assigned sex," the one based on his or her genitalia. For instance, suppose you're born with male genitals. Your family raises you as a male, but inside, you feel as though you were born into the wrong sex body. You identify as female. That's transgender.

Transgender Film Draws Protests at Festival Site
Transgender and transsexual women and men and their supporters gathered outside Tribeca Cinemas Tuesday evening to demand the removal of what they called a transphobic film from the
Tribeca Film Festival lineup.
The film, “
Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives,” is described by its creator, Israel Luna, as an homage to 1970s exploitation films. But the inclusion of the word “trannie” — a pejorative, in some circles — in the title, and the film’s parodic representation of transgender women, has offended many people.
