Organised by Transgender Europe and hosted by Transgender Equality Network Ireland
Public space and usage of public transport is for many trans persons in Europe a dreadful experience. Transgender Europe shows how trans passengers often are affected in their safety, security and dignity by staff and fellow passengers. 79% of trans people in an EU-wide survey reported harassment in public; 43% of trans respondents in a national survey feel “less well treated” in the street. This statement also presents best practices and 10 concrete recommendations aiming to inspire dialogue and yield sustainable improvements.
We wish to strongly denounce the Greek Representatives to the UN for spreading unabashed lies and for political fraud, because the legislation in Greece makes absolutely no provision for discrimination on the grounds of gender identity.
