On September 2, PBI-Honduras tweeted:
“We recently accompanied different organizations of Honduran trans people during the ‘National Encounter of Trans People, We Lead, Let’s Make It Reality!’”
On Facebook, PBI-Honduras further notes that the full name of the meeting was: “National Meeting of Trans People. We Lead, Let’s Make It Reality! Towards the recognition of a Gender Identity Act and recognition of Sexual and Reproductive Rights”.
They also noted:
“Among other things, the participants reflected on the importance of passing a gender identity law, name change and other laws, protocols and public policies that promote and protect their human rights. They also recalled, through a public statement, the importance of the State complying with the reparations established by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (CIDH) for the Vicky Hernandez case.
From PBI we highlight the important work of organizations and individuals of the LGBTI+ community in demanding and defending their human rights. We recall that rights must be guaranteed for all people without any distinction.”
