Roundtable on rights of transgender people

On 22-23 September 2011 the FRA is hosting a roundtable event jointly organised with the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, entitled 'Rights to equality, life and security of the person: bridging the gap for transgender people'.

The two-day event gathers representatives of the EU institutions, international organisations, national governments, equality bodies and civil society organisations.

They will discuss the issue of gender identity in non-discrimination law, transphobic and homophobic speech and crime, and the FRA's upcoming survey on discrimination against and victimisation of LGBT people.
