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 “Gender Dysphoria” / “Gender Identity Disorders” categories 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, 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, STP, International 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.
The last International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization took place on Saturday, October 19, 2013. On this day, and throughout October 2013, more than 100 actions for trans depathologization were organized in 49 cities worldwide, within the STP Call for Action.
Furthermore, at the moment (October 2013), the Campaign counts on the support of more than 370 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.
