Welcome to the website of STP, International Campaign Stop Trans Pathologization, an international activist initiative working for trans depathologization.
The main objectives of STP are the removal of the classification of gender transition processes as a mental disorder from the diagnostic manuals (DSM of the American Psychiatric Association and ICD of the World Health Organization), access to state-funded trans health care, a change of the trans health care model, from an assessment towards an informed consent approach, legal gender recognition without medical requirements, depathologization of gender diversity in childhood, as well as protection from transphobic violence.
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, STP launches each year the Call to Action for the International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization, with activities being organized in cities all over the world throughout the month of October.
In October 2015, more than 100 actions took place in 45 cities worldwide within the International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization 2015.
The International Day of Action for Trans Depathologization 2016 will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
Furthermore, at the moment (August 2016), STP counts on the support of 402 activism groups and networks, public institutions and political organizations 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.
