Transgender is not an illness

In 1990 the World Health Organisation (WHO) removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses. Inexplicably, it left being being Transgender on this list.

Considering ‘Gender dysphoria’ (as it is officially called) as a mental illness is a hangover from a historical prejudice. I am deeply shocked that the WHO has not proactively worked to rectify this situation in the last 22 years.

Please sign this petition and make your voice heard loud and clear.
