Transgender Persons Want Right To Identify Themselves With Gender and Name They Feel Expresses Their Identity

costa_rica(QCOSTARICA) Diverse organizations like Mulabi, Transvida, and the Diversity Movement are seeking consensus in order to present a law to the Legislative Assembly in August regarding trans-gender rights.

Promoters say that the law is necessary because of obstacles and discrimination that trans-gender persons face.

The project would allow trans-gender persons to identify themselves with the gender and name they feel expresses their identity more properly than their birth name and gender.

Broad Front (Frente Amplio) legislator Ligia Fallas is behind the proposal, and Liberacion legislator Antonio Alvarez says he would support the bill, but wouldn’t include minors within it. Social Cristiana legislator Mario Redondo said he would study the proposal, but doesn’t see it prospering. Which is the view of Otto Guevara, of the Movimiento Libertario, as well.

Supporters say that they will present the bill in August, once the full aspects are more clear and hope for more support within the Assembly.
