Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We are funded by members and people like you. We are independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope. Few would have predicted when we started that torturers would become international outlaws. That most countries would abolish the death penalty. And seemingly untouchable dictators would be made to answer for their crimes.“

( 4.02.2014 ) The state decides who I am: Lack of legal gender recognition for transgender people in Europe

( abstract ) For transgender people, official identity documents reflecting their gender identity are vitally important for the enjoyment of their human rights. They are not only crucial when travelling but also for everyday life; depending on the specific country, individuals may be asked to produce an official document when they enrol in school, apply for a job, access a public library or open a bank account.

( 4.02.2014 ) L’État décide qui je suis. Les personnes transgenres confrontées à des procédures de changement d’état civil défaillantes ou inexistantes en Europe. Extraits

( abstract ) Les personnes transgenres ont absolument besoin de papiers reflétant leur identité de genre afin de pouvoir jouir de leurs droits humains. Ces papiers sont non seulement indispensables pour voyager mais également dans la vie quotidienne. Ce rapport illustre les violations des droits humains subies par les personnes transgenres en Europe lorsqu’elles cherchent à obtenir la reconnaissance légale de leur genre. Certains pays ne permettent pas de changer d’état civil. De nombreux autres n’autorisent les personnes transgenres à changer d’état civil que si elles acceptent de se plier à des exigences intrusives, qui constituent des violations de leurs droits humains.

( 24.01.2013 ) France  Contribution écrite au gouvernement concernant les violences et les discriminations basées sur l’identité de genre.

( abstract ) Cette contribution traite spécifiquement de certaines problématiques entrant dans le champ d’action du groupe de travail 6 de ce processus. En particulier, Amnesty International reste préoccupée par un certain nombre de questions ayant un impact négatif sur les vies des personnes transgenres et intersexuées et entraînant des violations de leurs droits humains. Cela inclut le manque d’une protection complète contre les discriminations fondées sur l’identité de genre, les conditions obligatoires pour la reconnaissance légale du genre et les obstacles dans l’accès aux soins. Le gouvernement français doit veiller à ce que toute action entreprise dans ces domaines respecte les normes internationales relatives aux droits humains et les recommandations des organes issus des traités internationaux ainsi que des institutions inter-gouvernementales telles que le Conseil de l’Europe.

OII

OII – Organisation Internationale des Intersexes

OII was founded in 2003 by and for intersex people, by Intersex American Curtis Hinkle, with a mission to attain human rights for intersex infants, children, and adults, particularly the right to bodily integrity and self-determination. OII rejects the medicalized labels of disorder, such as Disorders of Sex Development (or DSD) — which was imposed on intersex people in 2006 by the medical community to describe intersex people — because it is stigmatizing and facilitates nonconsensual medical and psychiatric practices. We also reject  the recent inclusion of intersex variations, under the language of DSD, in the American Psychiatric Association’s statistical manual, the DSM-V.“
