(en) France, UCL - ExisTransinter, In the fight against transphobia by Antipatriarchy Commission (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Around the world, attacks against trans & intersex people are on the rise. Both right and left governments are multiplying laws against underage trans people by criminalizing any help or support provided by those around them. Far-right lobbying is stepping up its actions against trans people and, more generally, against anything that is not cisgender, dyadic and heterosexual. In defense of the rights of trans & intersex people, let's take to the streets! ---- 5 years of Macron, 5 years for nothing ---- April 8, 2022, the future president-elect takes the floor in an online media to say that the questions of gender identity and sexual orientation should not be treated in elementary school or college, then backpedal in the press specialized a few days later. Yet the message is quite clear: the coming five-year term will once again be a five-year term in which the rights of trans and intersex people will be forgotten, or even worse. Indeed, it took 5 years of Macron's presidency for conversion therapies to finally be abolished, not without clashes and without transphobic debates within the various chambers of the National Assembly, and not without adding amendments whose interpretation will allow doctors and anti-trans associations to delay or block access to rights for underage trans people by using the argument of inciting "reflection and caution". It will also have been necessary to wait 5 years for the PMA for all to be voted and for trans people to be excluded. At the same time, the Minister Delegate for Citizenship receives several anti-trans activists on the sly to listen to their arguments, and the Minister of National Education allows himself to be photographed with the racist, Islamophobic and LGBTIphobe "feminist" collective Nemesis . Once again the government is sending the message that the lives and dignity of trans & intersex people are worthless and will not be relied upon by politicians for years to come.

Amplify the fight now
This clear observation invites us to establish a massive balance of power today so that the voices of trans & intersex people are finally heard. For the mutilation of intersex people to be prohibited, for access to transition paths to be free, free and unconditional, for the law to truly and effectively protect trans & intersex people against daily discrimination in access to housing, to studies, to work, etc., so that the administrative process for changing civil status is simplified and that this change can be made by simple declaration, so that trans people are no longer excluded from the "PMA for all".

This balance of power can be built through solidarity and support for trans & intersex associations / collectives, through the coordination of struggle efforts, through the massive presence in demonstrations and gatherings of all people sensitive to the material conditions of existence of a minority and precarious social group. It begins today with a massive demonstration of the ExistransInter, demanding and by a real consideration of the issues of struggle by all the actors of our social camp. Behind transphobia hides cissexism and patriarchy. Let's fight together to destroy this system that is killing us!

See you on Saturday May 14 at 2 p.m., Paris, place de l'Opéra.
