On November 5th, an international conference "European Standards and Good Practices in Gender Recognition" was co-organized by the Trans-Fuzja Foundation, the Polish Human Rights Defender’s Office and the Council of Europe’s LGBT Project.
Since 2008 Trans-Fuzja Foundation has been supporting the Polish transgender community, working to change the anti-discrimination law and to change the current legal gender recognition procedures.

The main objective of FRA is to research situation of various excluded social groups of European Union. This time the agency decided to focus on people discriminated against based on their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, or intersex status and the problems they encounter in accessing health services.
ILGA-Europe and Transgender Europe have issued a monitoring report regarding access to goods and services (Directive 2004/113/EC) and employment and occupation (Directive 2006/54/EC). Both Trans-Fuzja in Poland and TransFúzia in Slovakia have contributed to the report.
