Lei para transexuais está em risco no Palácio de Belém
O Parlamento deve ter de se pronunciar novamente sobre o diploma que irá simplificar o processo da mudança de sexo e do nome próprio no Registo Civil.

[Pakistan] [Commentary]
Intolerance towards our minorities
NADRA’s decision to add a third option under the gender category of CNICs and even hire some transgender data operators is a noteworthy move. However, there is still a long way to go before Pakistan can make any claims to have achieved a basic level of tolerance. Making our country more tolerant will require multidimensional efforts. There must be a sustained resolve to improve human rights records. In this regard, the failure of the police to punish human rights violations must not be ignored.
