Ally Minister Dalli on Malta’s groundbreaking GIGESC Bill
This short, fantastically informative piece by Minister Dr. Helena Dalli of Malta, outlines their groundbreaking Gender Identity, Gender Expression, and Sex Characteristics (GIGESC) Bill, the first legislation in the world to criminalize unconsented interventions on intersex infants!!! Minister Dalli, an amazingly humanitarian ally, attended the 3rd International Intersex Forum, held in Malta in 2013, where she met with all Forum participants including our own Hida Viloria (a co-organizer of the 3rd Forum). We extend our enormous gratitude, once again, to all Maltese government officials who worked on the passage of the GIGESC Bill — particularly Minister Helena Dalli and Silvan Agius (formerly of ILGA-EUrope and a founder and organizer of the Forums) — for making the intersex community’s human rights dreams a reality in Malta!
To paraphrase Pink Floyd, “Hay Doctor Leave Those Kids Alone.”
Well done one the part of Malta government, keep up the good works.
