Event: Transrespect and Transphobia in Europe
Berlin June 18th 11:00 am
Violence is an inevitable reality for many in the trans-community. An EU-wide research on transphobic hate crime found "that 79% of respondents had experienced some form of harassment in public ranging from transphobic comments to physical or sexual abuse.”
On the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the EU Commissioner for Fundamental Rights, Viviane Reding, met with LGBT people to learn first-hand about challenges experienced on the ground. Transgender Europe, represented by co-chair Richard Köhler, brought to the Commissioner's attention the difficulties many trans people experience on the job market; the high prevalence of violence and harrassment the community is facing as well as the inhumane barriers many EU member states impose for changing documents, such as sterility, divorce and mental diagnosis.
