The Spanish government will approve the trans law tomorrow, so the parliamentary process can begin

Date:

The text Equality states that the change of registered sex can be made from the age of 12: between 12 and 14 years judicial approval is required; between 14 and 16 years, the help of fathers, mothers or guardians; and from 16 there is no restriction.

Tomorrow, on the eve of International Pride Day, the Council of Ministers will approve the translaw project, which will allow the change of sex in the registry without medical or psychological reports, thus starting this future regulation in its parliamentary process.

The text arrives at the Council in the second round to be sent to Congress “without major changes”, but with some improvements that do not change the spirit of the law, as Equality Department sources have claimed, which they do not. have detailed .

It was a year ago that the department led by Irene Montero brought the bill for the real and effective equality of transgender people and for the guarantee of the rights of LGTBI people to the Council after difficult negotiations within the coalition government.

And it is that part of the PSOE, led by the then Vice President Carmen Calvo, questioned whether the will of the person was enough to change the registered sex, but the proposal for equality in favor of gender self-determination and the depathologizing of transsexuality.

The Council of State approved its preliminary draft report last Thursday, which will be made public when the law is sent to the Cortes; In addition, since the end of April, Equality has had the General Council for the Judiciary (CGPJ), which has asked for the possibility of gender reassignment in the registry without judicial approval to be increased to 18 years.

The text Equality states that the change of registered sex can be made from the age of 12: between 12 and 14 years judicial approval is required; between 14 and 16 years, the help of fathers, mothers or guardians; and from 16 there is no restriction.

The judges’ governing body found the law’s purpose laudable, to avoid discrimination against trans and LGTBI groups, but warned that if left unspecified, women could be harmed in certain areas, such as sports or testing. professions.

He also asked for guarantees to avoid fraudulent situations and that no one changes gender to avoid responsibility towards victims of gender violence.

The law depathologises transgender people so that the person’s will is the only requirement for change, ending medical records and the need for medical and legal guardianship, it also prohibits conversion, aversion, or counterconditioning therapies intended to alter sexual orientation, identity to modify or expression.

It amends the Civil Code to allow lesbian and bisexual women to parent their children without having to marry, and is considering, among other things, a system of violations and sanctions that will reverse the rules on the burden of proof when attempting to cheat the LGTBI group. discriminate.

Equality is confident that the text coming out of the Council tomorrow will improve during the parliamentary process with the contributions of the political groups, other sources in the section said.

The state federation of lesbians, gays, transgenders, bisexuals, intersex and more (Felgtbi+) is already working on these improvements which it will hand over to the groups for them to propose through amendments.

These proposals, as explained by the Felgtbi+, are intended to ensure that trans refugees, displaced persons or applicants for international protection, regardless of their administrative situation, have no obstacles to change their registration or that the administration recognizes their gender identity.
