ENG Transgender Europe (TGEU) is a charitable organization based in Berlin (Germany) that was created on the first European Transgender Council in Vienna in November 2005, and it has established itself as a legitimate voice of the trans community in Europe. TGEU envisions a Europe free from discrimination, where each person can live according to their gender identity and gender expression without interference and where trans people and their families are respected and valued.
TGEU works for the equality of all trans people in Europe by:
Giving trans people a voice in Europe; Advocating for trans people’s human rights; Raising awareness on issues trans people are facing; Supporting a strong trans movement; Conducting and encouraging research for the benefit of trans people; Being an active part of the international trans movement
Today, TGEU has an office in Berlin, ten members of staff and a Steering Committee of nine volunteers governing the organisation. They successfully continue to combine advocacy work on the European level with work on the national level in partnership with their members with and for local communities.
