nu stiu cine m-a pus, m-am bagat sa prezint la o conferinta in noiembrie - un fel de draft al lucrarii de master. la master m-am bagat ca sa tin companie cuiva drag, si ca sa am cum sa fac dupa aia un doctorat, ca sa ajung/em in final la ce zic in abstractu' pe care l-am trimis la ramona (dima) si simona (ramonei), organizatoarele conferintei queerfemsee.
de vreo 2 zile ma tot gindesc ca n-am mai prea facut mare lucru de cind am scris abstractu', acum doua luni.

As the international discussion on transgender rights seems to have gained considerable momentum, judging by the extensive media coverage and the wave of gender recognition laws and measures passed in the past few years, it seems fitting that Romanian transgender activists and allies should tap into this context in order to (re)open the discussion on transgender rights in Romania, especially concerning legal gender recognition.
First of all, is there such a movement? To what extent can we talk about orchestrated efforts aimed at winning rights and recognition for transgender persons in Romania? How well are we doing? Are we standing, walking, running? The first section of my paper reviews some of the landmarks of transgender activism so far, as well as the different directions of its efforts and potentiality nowadays.
Secondly, I will briefly review the existing laws and practices in Romanian society regarding legal gender recognition, as well as the set-in-place mechanisms and practices which can be resorted to. Relevantly, we will present these facts comparatively, the backdrop being the legislations and mechanisms set in place in Argentina, Malta, or Norway.
Finally, we shall look at some positions/inputs by transgender persons and allies, activists and non-activists, legal and other professionals, regarding the optimal ways of getting from point A (Romania) to point B (Argentina, Malta, Norway etc). What are some of the perceptions and outlooks on the future concerning legal gender recognition in Romania and generally being able to affirm one's gender identity and be safe, healthy and respected. These positions are still very much at the onset of being collected, this presentation being the first in a series of efforts to (re)open the public discussion on legal gender recognition in Romania.
I sketched out this project in the summer of 2016, with transgender friends and allies by my side. My aim is to document the urgent need for adequate legislation and mechanisms for gender recognition in Romania, as well as put on the negotiation table a legal text draft that stakeholders can adopt, discuss and change as needed - or blow it up as indecent and come up with something adequate. Whatever the case may be, the essential thing is for the process to begin.
The interviews, data collection and events design are still in full swing, and will probably take a good couple of years. My final legal proposal will integrate transgender persons’ testimonials/input, as well as that of professionals and activists, based on their experience in assisting transgender persons’ efforts for a safe and healthy life, enjoying the protection and respect of society and its institutions.
- sincer, nu stiu daca o sa zic mult mai mult decit atita in noiembrie, deci cititi colea si scutiti banii de bilet ratb si mai bine mai bagati niste ivo dimchev - cant get more queer than this, not much, i say.
love the fuckedupbitch, excuse my up.
[am invatat asta de la marian de curind, el zice scuzati mea cind ii mai scapa cite un plm]
in timp ce eu o sa zic despre astea - nu stiu ce anume, fuck, cine dracu m-o fi pus - kim davis va fi plecat de mult din rominia, iar ivo va continua sa aiba pe youtube o colectie de videouri din care cel mai mult imi place asta de l-am pus above. e incredibil de bun pentru a ilustra chestii precum:
- relatia cu corpul tau
- relatia cu kim davis
- norme de gen
- escapism versus balls
- gasiti inca una
- gasiti inca una
- gasiti inca una
in timp ce o sa zic despre astea, referendumul va fi fost anuntat, cred?
enfin, ceva se va fi intimplat in inevitabila directie a nazificarii rominiei.
in schimb, sanatatea mea cardiaca se va fi recuperat, caci martea si miercurea nu voi mai avea tahicardie bumtzi-bumtzi. imi voi incepe ziua cu r3 in loc de u3. that will rock.
o sa fie frumos. comunismul va fi fost invins, inca o data.
kim davis va zimbi.
