Trans Rights Take a Hit in Peru 🇵🇪

Big yikes! The Peru­vian gov­ern­ment just dropped a bomb on the LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty. Their new law labels trans­gen­der, non-bina­ry, and inter­sex folks as men­tal­ly ill.

Advo­cates Are Fuming

Need­less to say, LGBTQ+ groups are NOT hap­py. They see this as a major set­back for trans rights and a huge step back­wards. ️‍️‍⚧️

Wait, “Free” Men­tal Health Care?

The gov­ern­ment claims this law will pro­vide “full cov­er­age” for men­tal health needs of trans peo­ple. Sounds good on paper, but with this clas­si­fi­ca­tion, is it real­ly help or just a way to pathol­o­gize trans identities?

Con­ver­sion Ther­a­py Not on the Menu (Offi­cial­ly)

The health min­istry insists this law won’t force trans peo­ple into con­ver­sion ther­a­py (try­ing to change some­one’s sex­u­al ori­en­ta­tion or gen­der iden­ti­ty), but the optics are still pret­ty bad.

Influ­encer Dra­ma? ☕️

Trans influ­encer Dylan Mul­vaney took a men­tal health break in Peru last year and raved about how safe they felt. This new law might make them rethink that.

Pride Month Protests Incom­ing? ✊️

With Pride Month just around the cor­ner, we can expect major demon­stra­tions from the LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty in Peru. Will the gov­ern­ment budge? Stay tuned!
