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.

She was taken to the hospital just after the gunshot, but she died before reaching at the hospital. other transwomen - m.k.  and y.e. - were injured and were taken to the hospital. The attackers were caught by the police."
