Can a team of advocates for #transsexuality, from a school district and a medical services organization to county social workers, simply decide that a 17-year-old minor is “emancipated” from his parents and go ahead with male-to-female sex-change treatments with no further permission?

That’s the question being asked in a lawsuit being brought against #StLouis County in #Minnesota, its public health chief Linnea Mirsch, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services, St. Louis County School District, Cherry School Principal Michael Johnson and others. “This is an outrageous abuse of power by multiple agencies,” said Tom Brejcha, chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, which is working with local attorney Erick Kaardal of Mohrman, Kaardal and Erickson of Minneapolis on the case. “To treat a minor child without either parental consent or a court order of emancipation is a violation of the trust placed upon the human service sector and its governmental oversight agencies. To give a parent no recourse to intervene in this situation is an egregious violation of constitutional rights,” Brejcha said.

Ironically, when the case has appeared in court, a district judge refused the juvenile’s petition for a change of name, from a male name to a female name, for “lack of any adjudication relative to emancipation.” Spokeswoman Dana Kazel of St. Louis County said the county hadn’t been served “with any documents related to a lawsuit purportedly filed.” She said, “A review of district court filings conducted this morning also did not yield any results.”

June 17, 2016: Debora (right) sits with her boyfriend Luis Carlos. She has been living in the 'Jambalaya' apartments for three-and-a-half years, ever since her father—an Evangelical Christian who could not accept her #transsexuality—threw her out of the family home.

Millions of people in Brazil live without secure housing. Government-backed social housing schemes, aimed at reducing an estimated shortage of 5.24 million homes in #Brazil, have had limited impact. Some 300 families live in a neighborhood in Campo Grande, in the western zone of #RiodeJaneiro, squatting in derelict apartment blocks: the remnants of a failed middle-class housing development of 30 years ago. Residents call the quarter 'Jambalaya', after a TV show, or sometimes 'Copacabana Palace' after a luxury hotel. Like many #favelas and slums across the country, the quarter lacks basic infrastructure and living conditions are poor.

The 2017 Photo Contest (#WPPh2017) drew entries from around the world: 5,034 photographers from 125 countries submitted 80,408 images. We'll be sharing some of the winning images for the next few weeks, but click the link in our bio to see the full gallery of 309 prize-winning photos.

Being a man and becoming a woman (or viceversa) is an incredibly difficult process that requires #transsexuals to face tremendous challenges, both physically and psychologically. Hardly would one have the strength to go through such an awful lot if there wasn’t an intense, deep-rooted need at the base of such a life-changing decision. 22 year-old Italian photographer Francesca De Chirico‘s series Portrait of a Gender provides a deeper look at the often shallow representation of #transsexuality through the pictures, old and new, of a girl called Nicole.

Hi, by 24th May, since people's sexuality has been illegalised, I've became a person that is no more legal.
I'm 22, AFAB Agender genderflux(with trans man) and my sexuality is Demisexual/Femsexual and I've become illegalised by today.
Us, Korean genderqueers and others in LGBTQA+ community became illegal by today from the jail sentence of gay army man that was engaged in sexual acts which was consented and happened out of his base.
We will never be treated equally as cis heterosexual people and we will never be able to grab our human rights. We will always be in fear of being outed and we will be bullied.
Thank you. #prayforlgbtcommunity #lgbtqa #weareillegalised #asexuality #bisexuality #transsexuality #humanrigths #protectus #wearealsohumans #한국퀴어 #2page #2쪽 #퀴어 #인권 #closetedtrans

I'm so happy and honoured to meet you again, my dear Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera! You and all your fellow Ugandan LGBTI activists are such a great example to all of us, who fight for equality but in a much safer environment and under much better conditions.
