While normally in the Ukraine, if a trans person wants to legally change their gender, they have to undergo sterilization. However — two individuals were just allowed to change their gender on legal documents without having to be sterilized. Sadly, the laws are still on the books, but hopefully this will set a precedent! We’ve got that and more in our monthly look at trans issues around the world!
This coverage promotes sexual and gender equality while highlighting issues of health, violence, culture, and legal and human rights. Equal Eyes provides advocates and allies a common frame of reference for the realities of global LGBTI communities. Through followup reporting and disseminating this coverage, our effort is to ensure we have a representation of the global stories that matter most or may have under-reporting.
