About Transgender Netwerk Nederland (TNN)
TNN IS …
Transgender Netwerk Nederland has been active since 2008 as the advocacy organisation tor transgender people in the Netherlands. TNN has committed itself to creating a gender diverse society, one in which freedom of self-expression, and the human rights of trans individuals are guaranteed.
TNN BELIEVES …
IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN GENDER
Not medical practitioners or bureaucrats, but individuals themselves should have the final say on their gender, both in terms of their medical transition and that of their legal documentation and status.
ABOLISH GENDER REGISTRATION
There are no real reasons for the state to register someone’s gender. In other words, let’s do away with it!
TRANSITION LEAVE FOR EMPLOYEES
Trans employees should, comparable to pregnancy leave, have the right to transition leave. This so both parties know what to expect.
ESSENTIAL CARE FOR EVERYONE
Trans persons have the right to individual essential care. Income, legal status, residence and gender identity should not have any influence on this.
AN EXPLICIT BAN ON DISCRIMINATION
Stating that discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression is real and including this in the General Law of Equal Treatment provides the necessary leverage to combat discrimination. After many years of advocating for this, the law came into effect on November 1st 2019.
TNN works on changing things by:
• Engaging in dialogue with politicians, policy makers, professionals and employers.
• Informing the general public.
• Working intensively with volunteers, local trans groups & organizations.
• Supporting trans individuals in their studies, on the labour market and in their work environment.
