LGBTI news of the world
5 - 11 June 2020

Written by Maddalena Tomassini

This week has seen worrisome pushbacks for LGBTI people’s rights, especially concerning the safety and wellbeing of trans people. In Europe, Kazakhstan is trying to increase the age limit for youth to access legal gender recognition and gender-affirming care. At the same time, as athletes and advocacy groups in the United States are calling on the NCAA to actively show solidarity with trans and intersex athletes, Tennessee is seeking to follow the discriminatory footsteps of a recent hostile law that was passed in Idaho. Worrisome reports also come from Kuwait, where a trans woman reported having suffered abuse and rape at the hands of police.

Meanwhile, an NGO that has been seeking official registration for years in Kenya will have to wait some more, as the Supreme Court postponed the hearing.

To a brighter note, a university in Australia has created an Indigenous Queer Studies unit - a reported first in the country. Historic news also came from Chile, where a couple of lesbian women were both recognised filial rights to their child.

Video of the week: 
Many LGBT people flee their countries to escape persecution and move to Europe to seek protection and a new life. Instead, they found themselves stuck in an unfair system that doesn’t recognise them.
The SOGICA project aims to highlight their stories.
