Broden Giambrone, shares TENI’s campaign for inclusive gender recognition legislation.
Broden Giambrone, is the Chief Executive of Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI). TENI work towards equal rights for trans people and their families by providing support, education, advocacy and capacity building.
Broden has over ten years experience working with trans communities in Ireland and Canada. He is an active advocate for transgender rights and is currently leading TENI’s campaign for inclusive gender recognition legislation.
Ireland is the only country in the EU that has no provision for legal gender recognition. Legal gender recognition allows an individual to change the gender on their birth certificate and be recognised by the State in their true gender. Without this transgender and intersex people have no formal legal status and this impacts on their access to basic social services including social welfare benefits, education and marriage and various other aspects of life that can usually be taken for granted by individuals.
There has been some progress, last December, the Irish Government introduced the Gender Recognition Bill 2014. This piece of legislation would formally recognise trans and intersex people in Ireland. As the Bill has been published, it will now be debated in the Houses of the Oireachtas.

BY SHYAMA RAMANI
@ VOL 36
ON JUN 19, 2018
Shyama Ramani is Professorial Fellow at the research institute United Nations University-MERIT in Maastricht. Her research focuses on the relationships between technology, innovation and their governance for inclusive development. She is also the founder of two non-profit research units ‘Association Un Ami’ and ‘Friend in Need Trust’, in France and India.
Shyama experiences three kinds of knowledge divides today: that between students and scholars in good institutions and the not-so-good ones, that between academics and society and that between truth and fabricated truth.
In her PechaKucha presentation she shows how academics can contribute to societal welfare just through sharing the results of their research in an understandable way.
