No Outubro Trans de 2015, nasce a 2ª Edição da TRANSZINE, numa iniciativa das Panteras Rosa: frente de combate contra a lesbigaytransfobia, e no contexto da convocatória da Stop Patologização Trans. ( )

Nesta edição, exploramos o território dos nossos próprios corpos, para poder viajar sem destino obrigatório: eles são nossos! Surge uma transzine que espera agitar e transformar-se num pequeno meio de informação e reflexão em torno das questões trans, numa visão despatologizante, empoderadora, queer e interseccional.

De barriga cheia, junta-te a nós para o lançamento e ver algumas curtas despatologizantes e participar na conversa informal: "Despatologização trans, que mudanças no contexto nacional?".
Entrada Livre

Governor Andrew Cuomo Announces New Protections for Transgender New Yorkers
TLDEF responded to news that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will issue new regulations to protect transgender New Yorkers from discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, and credit. The governor said the new protections will extend the reach of the New York State Human Rights Law that already bars discrimination on the basis of sex and disability. “[T]he fair legal interpretation and definition of a person’s sex includes gender identity and gender expression,” the governor said. A statement from the governor’s office also read in part: “These regulations affirm that all transgender individuals are protected under the State’s Human Rights Law, and all public and private employers, housing providers, businesses, creditors and others should know that discrimination against transgender persons is unlawful and will not be tolerated anywhere in the State of New York.”

Molest her? What diabolical she-penis monstrosity has the City unleashed on our powerless womenfolk?
