Recognition of Gender Identity for persons under 18 years of age in Mexico City WITHOUT TRIAL!

Recognition of Gender Identity for persons under 18 years of age in Mexico City WITHOUT TRIAL!

At LEDESER we are very happy. Today, on July 21st, 2017 we got the Civil Registry of Mexico City to approve the processing of a new birth certificate for a Trans girl WITHOUT TRIAL.

It has been a long road and this Strategic Litigation has involved many people and institutions.

Congratulations to Sophia and her family, to COPRED (Council for the Prevention and Elimination of Discrimination of Mexico City) for all the support and accompaniment it has given to the case, to the Civil Registry of Mexico City, which has decided to take this important step towards respect for the rights of all children and adolescents, to Colectivo Ser Gay, to the professionals who have given us counseling in the case and to the team that we formed in LEDESER for this achievement that sets a precedent that will change the reality of many.

This is a great day for Trans boys and girls in Mexico. Today they gained reason and human rights.

WE DID IT!
