New trans application filed with the European Court
The applicant in this case is a young transgender man who wishes to undergo gender reassignment surgery. The applicant found it impossible to obtain adequate medical assistance in Macedonia due to the absence of the requisite facilities but also due to the indifferent or even outright hostile attitude of medical professionals he met towards transgender people. He therefore decided to seek treatment abroad, in Serbia. There he received a gender dysphoria diagnosis and he started to undergo hormonal treatment. Since he could not afford the costs and in the absence of coverage from the Macedonian health insurance fund, he had to discontinue the treatment. He therefore found himself in an intolerable situation of limbo, due to the discrepancy between the gender marker included in his personal documents reflecting his sex at birth on the one hand and his male appearance and name on the other hand. He filed a request asking that he be issued with a new birth certificate reflecting his preferred gender, which the authorities rejected.
