Insight NGO provides psychological, legal and medical support to trans people, as well as counseling on issues related to transition.
Main trans program activities are:
We work with medical specialists to improve their knowledge in the field of trans health services.
We represent the interests of trans people in litigation in situations involving human rights violations on the ground of gender identity.
We hold events to raise awareness of the LGBT community about trans issues, as well as events for trans people themselves, where they can communicate freely in a safe space.
We conduct studies related to trans issues in Ukraine, as well as publish articles and brochures on this topic. In 2015 and 2018, we held international conferences in Kyiv at the juncture of social, medical and legal issues in the transgender context.
We organize public events to draw more public attention to the trans issues and the necessity of changes. In particular, since 2016, Insight has been the organizer of trans marches held annually in Kyiv.
We increase the visibility of trans people by working with the media.
Insight NGO cooperates with international organizations such as TGEU, ILGA, Amnesty International and informs the international community about the situation in Ukraine.
We also work with the Ministry of Health and other governmental agencies to improve the legal framework that directly affects the situation of trans people in Ukraine, in particular regulating the transition procedure and the legal gender recognition.
