On April 13, Portugal made history by approving a law that allows transgender people to identify with their actual name and gender, without going through medical or legal procedures.

That law could've changed many lives, but it was vetoed by President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

The Portuguese Parliament has the power to overturn the veto, but we need 7 MPs that voted against the law to change their minds to reach the necessary majority of 116.

We ask Portuguese MPs to reject this veto.

Want to find out if we win this campaign?

Because of new regulations, we can only let you know if Portuguese MPs will reject this veto if you sign up to receive emails from us.

So - can we email you about this and other urgent campaigns for LGBT+ rights?

Are you sure? If you choose 'Yes', we'll let you know how you can help when the next urgent fight for LGBT+ rights around the world comes up. You can unsubscribe at any time. Select 'No', and we won't sign you up, but we will store your information for the petition delivery.

Tiago is a 17-year-old boy from Portugal. For years, he had to face daily embarrassment and pain - because his government doesn't recognise the name and gender of transgender people like him.

A few days ago, the Portuguese Parliament approved a groundbreaking law that allows any transgender person older than 16 to identify with their actual name and gender, without medical or legal procedures.

The law could've changed Tiago's life, but it was vetoed by President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

The Portuguese Parliament has the power to overturn the veto, but we need 7 Members of Parliament that voted against the law to change their minds to reach the necessary majority of 116.

With just a couple of clicks, you can help overturn this veto and change the lives of so many transgender people in Portugal. Add your name today!

This campaign is being run in partnership with TransMissão: Associação Trans e Não-Binária and Transgender Europe.
