Trans and intersex people Discrimination on the grounds of sex, gender identity and gender expression

Original Title: 
Trans and intersex people Discrimination on the grounds of sex, gender identity and gender expression
Resource Type: 
Report

The main part of the report deals with EU law on trans discrimination. EU non-discrimination law does not at present

contain an explicit prohibition of discrimination on the grounds of a person’s gender identity and gender expression.

Indeed, Art. 19 TFEU, which is the most general legal provision on non-discrimination in the EU Treaty, entitles the

EU to take action to combat “discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age

or sexual orientation” only, without mentioning trans issues. Neither does a prohibition on discrimination against

trans people appear in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
