New legislation in Germany allows for intersexuals to opt out of the gender binary. Activists say it does not go far enough.
An intersex person has won a court case to allow them to enter a third gender into the registry of births. The case was appealed to the Federal Constitutional Court after failing at lower levels.
Germany just ruled on the legal need to provide a gender option beyond "male " or "female." But the ethical recommendation for a third gender actually came years ago. DW’s Christoph Strack finds the delay shameful.
Intersex people want Germany's Federal Constitutional Court to officially allow them to use their own gender designations rather than relegating them to "male" or "female." For them, it's about dignity and recognition.
Hundreds of thousands of people have marched in Madrid for LGBTI rights in the world's largest such march. Activists called for the EU to help export these rights across the world.
