PS propõe alteração ao código laboral para acabar com discriminação dos transexuais
Segundo o relatório da Agência da União Europeia para os Direitos Fundamentais, 60% das mulheres transexuais e 43% dos homens transexuais sentiram discriminação na procura de emprego.

E 60% das mulheres trans na UE parece-me uma estimativa demasiado optimista, considerando os niveis de transfobia exitentes.

Advancement of transgender's rights
The term “third gender” describes individuals who are categorised as neither man nor woman. Although nothing seems more natural to us than those human beings who are divided into two genders, masculine and feminine. However, the world is slowly moving towards the formal recognition of the existence of a third gender. As reported by the Global Issues Section in the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the rights of transgender people, particularly to say, their own identity and access to health, education, work, housing and other rights are being increasingly widely recognised. To be noted, there has long been a tradition of a third gender in the region of South Asia, known as hijras, and neighbours to Bangladesh particularly India, Nepal and Pakistan have already given the recognition to the third gender people.
