    Ombudsman for Equality: Clearer Prohibition of Discrimination of Gender Minorities in EU and Finland

    The Ombudsman for Equality gave a speech at the European Parliament's LGBT Intergroup's seminar on 26 September about legislative challenges concerning the legal status of trans and intersex people.

    - It is very important that EU legislation would come to include specific provisions that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. The legal status of trans and intersex people can to a certain extent be protected through interpretations of current legislation and case law. It would, however, be a vast improvement to their legal protection, if specific prohibitions of discrimination concerning them would be included in EU law, the Ombudsman stressed.
