Swiss study on tolerance

Swiss study: How are tolerance and school education related? In the past, it has been repeatedly emphasized how important it is to focus primarily on education and awareness in the fight against homophobia. A recent study from Switzerland underscores this demand. It showed that people with a higher level of education are often much more tolerant of issues such as homosexuality. Of course, there are always exceptions. However, it is clear that the study has demonstrated a corresponding tendency. A total of 4,400 people between the ages of 13 and 19 were surveyed between May 2021 and June 2021. The study was led by the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development. Among other things, the study also showed, shockingly, that violence against queers has increased in Zurich. In addition, many non-heterosexual men are bullied - both at school and online.

Trans and intersex people are compensated

Good news: Trans and intersex people to be compensated Trans- and intersexual people should be able to benefit from a compensation fund in the future. This is exactly what various ministers of justice of the federal states demand. Once again, much in this context revolves around the TSG, the Transsexual Act, under which many affected people suffered in the past. For many queers, this law stands for discrimination and for the fact that many transsexuals and intersexuals still face many obstacles on their way towards self-identification. With regard to a possible compensation of those affected, it is now important not to destroy any files (and accordingly evidence around the TSG). Who may claim compensation? In order to be allowed to claim compensation as a trans or intersex person, some basic requirements have to be met. Generalizing a...
