Seminar with Academic Pride

Transgender rights, demographics and access to care in Sweden from 1972 until today

How has the situation for transgender people in Sweden changed, or stayed the same, in the last 50 years? Come and hear what we’ve learned from current research and discuss how to use this knowledge in promoting transgender rights.

At this seminar you'll get an overview on the demographics of transgender people receiving gender-affirming care in Sweden – number of people, age, and earnings -- from the 1970s until today. We focus especially on geographic differences in access to care and the impact of ending the sterilization requirement in 2013.

Speakers: Ylva Moberg and Lucas Tilley, leading experts on the demography of LGBTQ populations in the Nordic countries and a part of the research group GAINS at Stockholm University.

Moderator: Roh Petas, Gender equality, diversity and equal conditions strategist at KTH.

Language: The seminar will be held in English

About Academic Pride

This year's participants are Stockholm School of Economics, KI, KTH, Stockholm University and Södertörn University. The aim of the network is to make the importance of LGBTQI+ issues visible at the universities, both in terms of research and teaching and in terms of inclusive work and study environments.
