Because laws are very important, but they only represent recognition within a judicial framework. For real, social and collective progress is also necessary the acceptance and visibility of identities in society as a whole. In the case of the National University of Córdoba, the gender identity law is not being enacted accordingly. Therefore, students and organized activists decided to denounce to make this reality visible.
It should be noted that the UNC is one of the oldest universities in the country , and that more than 400 years has been updated on different topics. Always thanks to the students who set the course. They and they are the ones who denounce and with their voice they generate fundamental changes. The reports that were released are now led by trans and transvestites students fighting for the visibility of their identities. It is a matter of showing non-compliance or irregularity in compliance with Law 26.743, which directly affects the LGBTTTIQ+ community. But, luckily, we don't shut up anymore.
There are many problems surrounding the inclusion of the LGBTTTIQ+ community within this millennial institution. However, this time, the focus is on the breach of the Gender Identity Law on the electronic and virtual platforms of the Casa de Trejo. In addition, the most important point is the level of exposure students face when they appear registered in Digest. As this file disseminated personal and sensitive information publicly and freely accessible.
The Digest shows all the acts of change of name and identity, where personal, confidential data are displayed and should not be disseminated by a public institution.For example, the previous names and identity, or the rectification of names along with the new identity. Therefore, different organizations, with their respective references , decided to draft a complaint letter. In which they detail all the rights infringed and require that all data contained and exposed to each transvestite or trans student be deleted. The letter states that Law 26.743 and University Ordinance 9/11 guarantee the confidentiality and privacy of the personal and administrative data of trans and transvestites. But, in this case, it is not being guaranteed in any way.
Thiago, who is a UNC student counselor and trans activist, tells the media and its networks the importance of deleting this data. “ If I now google my name, one of the first answers to me is resolution 9/11 which realizes that I made an identity rectification. First it exposes the procedure that I did, second, reveals previous information, that is, the data that was assigned at birth, and the gender identity law states that this is illegal,” he says.
The importance of the issue lies in the fact that the law on gender identity provides for every subjectivity that wishes to make a gender change. But it does not change at all the transphobic society in which we live. In this regard, Thiago says: “The effects are terrible because many trans-hateful practices are still reproduced and exerted, many hate speeches circulate, there is persecution, and hate crimes towards our identities, so it seems to me that it is serious and dangerous that these data are very serious and dangerous.eacute; n exposed”.
Alexis Ravera, from the organization Devenir Diverse, also provides his opinion. “ Not only is it illegal, but it exposes us to situations of violation and hostility. This data, being trans or transvestites, means in most cases, not accessing a job or being kicked out if you are lucky enough to have a registered job.”
In an ideal society, this news would not exist. It wouldn't even be a problem if the transition data is exposed. But that's not the case. As Argentines we have to keep changing, growing and questioning. The visibility of identities is not done without struggles, nor without the legitimization of the media. That this news, and their ideas, come to light and reach our entire territory drives other communities to fight for their rights.
As Argentines, with a past of repression and disappearance, the value we should give to the right to identity is key. That's why we give strength to the University's LGBTTTIQ+ student community, and keep the fight going.
