Many trans people are passionate about equality, which can lead them to join community groups, unions, or protests. This pamphlet gives legal information for trans people interacting with Police and the criminal justice system when protesting.
15% of trans people run away from home or are kicked out because of their gender. Those rejected by whaanau are twice as likely to have experienced homelessness (40%) as those who were not rejected (22%).
We're very pleased to announce that the national guidelines for trans healthcare in Aotearoa have been released, and can be found here.
As a progressive country, New Zealand prides itself on being world leaders in human rights - from votes for women, to decriminalisation of sex work, equal rights is a strong part of how kiwis see themselves. But a small handful of anti-trans extremists, or 'Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists' are attacking the human rights of transgender people, with a focus on transgender women.
Today’s announced changes to the process for amending gender markers on birth certifciates are welcomed by takatāpui, trans and non-binary people. “This small but significant change will make it fairer for those in our communities, who do not have the resources to use the existing Family Court process,” said Sally Dellow.
This statement was drafted by takatāpui, trans and non-binary people and organisations in Aotearoa New Zealand. It explains why it is so important that the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Relationships Registration Act (BDMRRA) 1995 is amended
March 10th 2018, takataapui, transgender, and intersex people and supporters walked, danced, and rode along in the Wellington International Pride Parade with a clear message: transgender health care now!
