A short film, released by the Open Society Foundation, presenting the hurdles many transgender people face every day. The film explains how trans people around the globe are unable to obtain proper official documents that reflect their personal identity.
“No one should determine your identity except you. Yet this is an obstacle transgender people face every day. The majority of trans people around the world cannot obtain official documents that match their identity. And without these documents, it’s nearly impossible to do basic things like enroll in school, get a job, see a doctor, travel, or vote.”
In conjunction with animation, a global guide on gender recognition laws was also released – License to Be Yourself. This report documents the best and worst laws around the world, and also features case studies from Argentina, Australia, Hong Kong, Kenya, Ukraine, and the United States
