“The third Transforma is a very important action by the General Public Defender of the State of Ceará in favor of restoring citizenship for trans and non-binary people in Fortaleza and Ceará. This partnership adds to the countless actions, projects and programs that the Special Coordination of Sexual Diversity has been implementing to transform the lives of these people who suffer so much prejudice and discrimination due to their sexual orientation and gender identity”, says Andrea Rossati, special coordinator of sexual diversity in Fortaleza.

The law
Six years ago, according to Provision No. 73, of 2018, of the National Council of Justice (CNJ), changing first name and gender can be done directly at the Civil Registry Office.
