NGOs urge Finnish Prime Minister to adhere to Human Rights Standards

Transgender Europe, ILGA-Europe and Amnesty International have written a joint open letter to the Prime Minister of Finland, Alexander Stubb, urging him to ensure that Finland's gender recognition legislation fully complies with international human rights standards.

The gender recognition law in Finland is currently under review.

To date, gender recognition procedures require sterility, a mental disorder diagnosis, dissolution of an existing marriage and are only available beyond the age of 18 years.
