Transgender Network Netherlands and Human Rights Watch together with COC this Thursday will present a report called Controlling bodies denying identities" on the situation of transgender people in the Netherlands to the secretary of Justice.
One of the first countries to have a gender recogntion law in the 1980ies the Netherlands now is backbencher in the range of countires having sich a a law. Lately Portugal surpassed Holland with a law requiring only Portugese citizenship, majority of age and a diagnosis of gender dysforia. The last four years Dutch ministers on several occasions said the human rights violating Dutch law should be revisioned but until now little initiative has come from that.
It is to expected that the coming bill will do away with all required medical treatment for legal sex reassignment but wil still be pathologising trans people by requiring a diagnosis of gender dysforia.
