What are my human rights as a transgender young person?

< All Topics

You have the same human rights as everyone else, but there are some human rights principles that give special protection to transgender people. These are:


• The Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW): This requires governments to prohibit discrimination against women in all forms including ensuring that the rights of transgender women are fully protected.


• The Yogyakarta Principles: These are a universal guide to human rights which affirm international legal standards on binding which all States must comply with.
