Argentine Ad Vividly Demonstrates Need for New Transgender Law

Argentine transgender equality advocates have created a video that vividly demonstrates why it’s so difficult to live daily life with IDs and other legal documents that do not accurately reflect your gender identity. The ad uses a diverse group of people to express the idea that acceptance is an important value to be embraced by everyone.

The “gender identity” law which would allow transgender Argentines to apply for government documents that match their expressed gender was proposed in 2007.

To see the ad, visit the site blabbeando. Also featured on blabbeando was an excellent interview (with English subtitles) from New York’s Pura Política with Rossana Rosado, editor and executive director of the Spanish-language daily El Diario La Prensa, in which she talks about the paper’s stance in support of marriage equality—a truly inspiring editor.
