October 23, International Day for Depathologization of Trans Identities
Stop Trans Pathologization-2012 Campaign, a campaign advocating for the depathologization of the trans identities (transexual and transgender). The main aims of the campaign are the removal of gender identity disorders from the diagnosis manuals (the DSM from the American Psychiatric Association, whose newly revised version is due in 2013, and the ICD from the World Health Organization, due in 2014), and the action to ensure the health rights of trans people. To facilitate public coverage of trans-relevant health care, STP 2012 proposes the inclusion of a non-pathologizing mention in the ICD-11.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
