"Políticas Trans: Qual o Futuro?"
19 de maio, às 21h
Centro LGBT
Rua de S. Lázaro, n.º 88, Lisboa
Metro: Martim Moniz

O GRIT - Grupo de Reflexão e Intervenção sobre Transexualidade da Associação ILGA Portugal vai promover, no próximo dia 19 de maio às 21h00, no Centro LGBT, a tertúlia "Políticas Trans: Qual o Futuro?" , integrada nas comemorações do Dia Internacional contra a Homofobia e Transfobia.
Que políticas para combater a Transfobia? Num contexto comum a Portugal e Espanha, onde vigoram Leis de Identidade de Género que procuram garantir o direito à identidade das pessoas transexuais, que passos faltam ser dados para conquistar uma cidadania plena? Quais os caminhos para garantir a todas as pessoas transexuais cuidados de saúde adequados e respeitadores da sua autonomia?
Para esta reflexão teremos a participação de Carla Antonelli , ativista trans espanhola e deputada a Madrid pelo Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE).
