Historisk resolution om transpersoners mänskliga rättigheter

I veckan har Europarådet med stor majoritet antagit en omfattande resolution för att skydda transpersoners mänskliga rättigheter. Resolutionen uppmanar medlemsstaterna att:
Adopt explicitly trans-inclusive anti-discrimination and hate crime legislation and measures, 
Adopt quick, transparent and accessible legal gender recognition procedures, based on self-determination, without further limitations based on a person’s characteristic (such as age), 
Abolish sterilization and other medical requirements such as a mental health diagnosis or a divorce requirement in legal gender recognition, 
Ensure that the best interest of the child in cases concerning children is always given primary consideration, 
Consider including a third gender option in identity documents for those who seek it, 
Make trans-specific health care accessible and ensure that trans people (incl. children) are not labelled as mentally ill in national or international classifications, 
Be pro-active as concerns information, awareness raising and training, particularly for professional groups.

Har transpersoner nu andra rättigheter än personer med annan sexuell läggning?
