Show your support for Hungarian trans and intersex people

The Hungarian Parliament voted in favour of a bill that outlaws legal gender recognition for trans and intersex people in the country.

This law is contradictory to both international and national human rights standards. 

The Council of Europe called upon member states to develop quick, transparent and accessible procedures, based on self-determination, for changing the name and registered sex of trans people.

The European Court of Human Rights established a positive obligation for European states to provide for gender recognition. 

The Hungarian Constitutional Court made it clear that changing name and gender is a fundamental right for transgender persons.

The bill affects intersex persons too. It fails to consider that many intersex people have variations of sex characteristics that do not match the general notion of which primary sex characteristic belongs to which chromosome pattern. Furthermore, some intersex people do not identify with the gender assigned to them at birth.

This will result in an increase of social marginalization, stigma, and discrimination against trans and intersex people.

To Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission:

Legal gender recognition is a fundamental right and needs to be guaranteed to protect trans and intersex people from discrimination and violence. Without being able to legally change gender and first name, ordinary things like picking up a parcel, opening a bank account or simply presenting their ID can become a daily source of difficulties.

We urge you to condemn the Hungarian government for this action and ensure all possible tools are being used to protect the fundamental rights of Hungarian trans and intersex people!

Yours sincerely,
