Welcome to the website of the STP, International Campaign Stop Trans Pathologization, a campaign for the depathologization of trans identities.
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), whose newly revised versions are due in 2013 and 2015, as well as the fight for trans health rights. To facilitate public coverage of trans-specific health care, the Campaign Stop Trans Pathologziation 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 2007, 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 2012, more than 100 actions for trans depathologization took place in 50 cities worldwide, organized by over 80 activist groups and organizations, within the STP Call for Action.
Furthermore, at the moment (January 2013), the Campaign counts on the support of more than 360 activism groups, organizations and networks from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania.
The next International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization will take place on October 19, 2013.
Apart from the annual call for action in October, during the year STP carries out information, networking and lobbying activities for trans depathologization.
