The Prevention of Hate Crime Against Trans People in Spain
17 Apr 2018 3pm - 4pm
Being transgender represents and constitutes a fundamental human right to decide sex and gender freely. Research in this regard has shown that there are no early erroneous socialization problems or alterations of any kind because of this sexual preference.
The educator and expert Fernando Barragán, a Doctor by the University of La Laguna, Tenerife (Spain), critically reviews the research on the so-called "Sissy boys", a cruel term, and offers the scientific alternatives to patriarchal medicine and psychology, as well as what to do in education both in families and in centers educational. According to Barragán, education must always promote human happiness and break the invisible barriers of oppression and violence.
This talk will review the most relevant legal regulations in Spain and Latin American countries on the protection of transpeople. Some practical examples of case law against hate crimes and national laws that allow people to change of their identity will be discussed. Protection against hate crime in the media will be a core issue examined in this talk.
We will also analyze the concept of gender, patriarchy and the issues of crossborder discourses and identities as well as some explorations of the meaning of transpeople as a human right to change identities. Our teacher training programmes will be presented at the end of the talk as a global educational solution.
