Joint letter with ILGA-Europe: New draft law in Hungary seeks to exculde trans women from pension benefits

Along with ILGA-Europe we have sent a letter to European Commission President von der Leyen, alerting her to a new draft law in Hungary excluding trans women from accessing pension benefits for women. This runs contrary to the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Court of Human Rights and Hungarian case law.
