The increasingly inclusive Lazio region creates courses dedicated to LGBT communities by establishing gender medicine.
With the approval of the motion presented by Sara Battisti, president of the regional commission for Constitutional Affairs, a process is launched that aims to counter homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
A motion approved by the regional council which is part of a path that has seen the Zingaretti administration at the forefront of guaranteeing rights, despite the very serious absence at national level of a law capable of protecting the victims of crimes of homophobia, explains Sara Battisti.
But what will change: first of all, “Gender Medicine, LGBTQ +” courses will be set up at all ASLs, in collaboration with sector associations, which will provide listening desks for advice and information in relation to the presumed or conscious homosexual condition;
but also to provide psychological support for those in need;
information activities for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases with monthly days to carry out rapid tests for the diagnosis of HIV infection;
paths dedicated to people in a condition of gender identity conflict for socio-health orientation and support for the transition process;
Last but not least, the motion approved today will make it possible to change the composition of the Observatory for Equal Opportunities through the provision of a representation of LGBTQ + associations for the adoption of measures aimed at combating homophobia.
A commitment that the Region assumes today and that will see the different associations of the five provinces of Lazio actively participate.
