Una tesis doctoral realizada en la UGR analiza por primera vez en España las vivencias y la calidad de vida de las personas transexuales, y la invisibilidad con la que el sistema social, político y científico ha tratado a este colectivo a lo largo de la historia.

Equality Act
Excerpt: Gender Reassignment Discrimination – under the new law a person no longer has to be under medical supervision to be protected from discrimination and harassment if they are a transsexual person. A person will also be protected from direct discrimination as a result of being associated with someone who is transsexual or if a person is being discriminated against by someone because they think they are a transsexual even if they are not. Transsexual people will also be
protected from indirect discrimination where a rule, policy or practice particularly disadvantages transsexual people and cannot be justified.

Remembering Gwen Araujo
With a rash of gay youth suicides and LGBT violence being reported all over the news in the past two weeks, today we will spend some time remembering the tragic murder of transgender teen Gwen Araujo. Araujo was murdered by four men eight years ago after they discovered that she was transgender. Receiving national attention and calls to educate people and reform laws concerning LGBT hate crimes, the people of the United States are still very far from understanding and accepting transgender people, especially teens.
