Finland: Change the law and support transgender rights activists.

Sakris Kupila has never identified as a woman. Yet the 21-year-old medical student must endure daily embarrassment because his identity documents say he is female – the gender he was assigned at birth. To legally reassign your gender, you must be diagnosed with a “mental disorder” and sterilised. Sakris opposes this humiliating treatment. And despite threats and open hostility, he continues to demand a change to the law.

Tell Finland to change the law and support transgender rights activists.
