The main goals of the Campaign are the removal of the categories of “gender dysphoria” / “gender identity disorders” from the diagnosis manuals (DSM of the American Psychiatric Association and ICD of the World Health Organization), as well as the fight for trans health rights. To facilitate public coverage of trans-specific health care, STP proposes the inclusion of a non-pathologizing mention in the ICD-11.
This website aims to visibilize the objectives, manifestos and actions of this Campaign, as well as the list of collective and individual supporters.
Since 2009, each month of October, the Campaign Stop Trans Pathologization calls an International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization, with simultaneous demonstrations and other activities in cities all over the world.
In October 2013, more than 100 actions for trans depathologization took place in 49 cities worldwide, organized by activist groups and organizations within the STP Call for Action.
Furthermore, at the moment (July 2014), the Campaign counts on the support of more than 380 activism groups, organizations and networks from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania.
Apart from the annual call for action in October, during the year STP carries out information, networking and lobbying activities for trans depathologization.
The next International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization will take place on Saturday, October 18th, 2014.
The slogan of the 2014 Call to Action is:
Stop Trans Pathologization - Stop Pathologizing Gender Diversity in Childhood - For the Diversity of Gender Expressions and Identities
