Human Rights

activismThe right to make decisions about one's own body has always been problematic for transgender and gender questioning people as bureaucracy in various forms have often intruded, claiming to be acting in the best interests of the transgender individual themselves.

Nowhere is this as evident as among transgender and gender questioning youth, especially when it comes to expressing their innate identity in settings such as schools and among activity groups, and with the inevitable introduction of hormone blocking treatment and later hormone therapy.

However, human rights for transgender and gender questioning people include much more as can be evidenced by the articles and other material in this section of the Gender Centre's website. In time this section will also include books and book reviews, videos, links to other transgender human rights websites and articles and more. The articles below are just a few of the articles currently on the Human Rights page of this website.
