TIn the discourse around LGBT+, the "family issue" has always been one of the critical issues. In fact, achieving marriage equality, i.e., the ability to enter into marriages and receive the same rights that heterosexual couples have, is often the primary goal of LGBT movements, which is sometimes equated to achieving equality in general.
However, most of the discourse, both from supporters and opponents of equality, focuses by default on cisgender LGBT+people.
Trans people and their needs and problems in the family context often fall out of this focus and end up in a particular blind spot. Therefore, when the issue of family rights comes to the political agenda level, only a few voices can be heard for trans people.
On the one hand, since the concept of sexual orientation as such is built around relationships, it is not surprising that it also implies urgent needs for the settlement of these relationships. On the other hand, the fact that any sexual orientation can be combined with any gender identity and transgender status, and that adds up to its features, can also not be denied or rejected. And when people start talking about such features, it sometimes causes no less contradictory reactions in society than the question of same-sex relationships. An example of this is the recent attempt to remove from Ukrainian legislation a ban on the adoption of children by people with medical diagnoses related to gender dysphoria, which has not yet succeeded.
