DARE Video 14: Cat McIlroy on Gender Identity, Human Rights and Transgender Inclusion

Cat McIlroy is a member of the Steering Committee of Transgender Europe (TGEU), a network of organisations that work for the rights of transgender/transsexual/gender variant people. Cat points out that trans* people still face major fundamental rights violations when it comes to gender identity recognition, access to healthcare, and employment.

In this respect the recently published issue paper “Human Rights and Gender Identity” by Thomas Hammarberg, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, plays an important role as a reference document and lobbying tool in order to advocate trans* rights.

This interview was shot at the 3rd Trangender Council in Malmö, Oct 1-3, 2010.
