Urgent letter to the President of Portugal
ILGA-Europe, TGEU and OII Europe urge President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa to sign the historic law as adopted by the Portuguese parliament on 13 April.
Two weeks ago we celebrated as Portugal voted to introduce self-determination and protection for intersex kids.
The reform provides everyone with one of the most basic fundamental rights, the right to be trusted to know who they are.
Now, there’s a risk that a presidential veto could derail the progress that LGBTI activists have worked for years to secure.
ILGA-Europe, TGEU, OII Europe, our partners and allies say in unison – don’t turn back the clock!
- We have written directly to President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, read our joint letter in full here.
- The Portuguese LGBTI movement have also urged the president to sign this bill into law without delay – and make history.
